I’m coming out of blog hiding for this historic moment.
Meet Sparky’s new best friend, Happy.
And his other new best friend, Sleepy.
In a dazzling display of parental enthusiasm never seen around these parts, Sparky came to live with our family today.
He is our first family dog.
He is very friendly, very loving, well-behaved, and very smart.
Except for when he became obsessed by the ‘other dog’ in the fireplace.
And there was this moment.
That would be a favorite stuffed animal that happens to have a rattle inside.
Sparky thought he was the luckiest guy in the world. Jonathan was not so thrilled.
They tell us that Sparky is an Australian Shepherd mix.
But most pictures I find of Australian Shepherds look like this.
So I’m thinking we’ll be emphasizing the ‘MIX’ part of Sparky’s description.
Turns out daddy is quite happy about bringing Sparky into the family, despite all his attempts to portray the skeptic. Today was a great day for daddy, because in addition to being the Best Dad Ever Because We Got a Dog, he had the chance to use this camera, which belongs to our friend Justin.
I’m hoping to post a bit of video later, taken from the above camera as well as from our totally inferior family Finepix point-and-shoot.
(what? Christmas decorations? what?)
