Oh man, I know it's been a hot second since I've been on the blog but I do have a really good excuse.
Our friend Elaine saw her getting pushed out of a car on a busy street here in Sacramento, which breaks my heart to think about! While Elaine couldn't take her at the time, she went back 3 hours later and our sweet pup was still there, which I think is definitely fate. Rob and I volunteered to house her for the night and we absolutely fell in love!
The problem was that our beloved Midtown apartment complex strictly prohibits dogs. So until we decided what we were going to do, Rob's dad babysat our sweet girl.
And it was a big decision for us. Rob and I hadn't planned on moving before the wedding because putting down another deposit meant more $$. Plus we loved our apartment, it's the first apartment we've ever lived in together. Most of all, I knew what a responsibility having a dog was. I knew that meant we'd have to be more considerate with our weekend trips and late night outings. It meant a lot more eating in instead of dining out. It meant being responsible for something other than ourselves (which for a LONG time, I've said I'm not ready to do). This was a really big decision for us, and it wasn't made lightly, I tossed and turned about it for nights. But it wasn't long until Shay, Rob and I were desperately attached (we were driving to see her nearly everyday), so we knew what we had to do.
