A New Addition to our Family

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Well, we are adding to our family. As many of you know, we have a son, Jared, that is mentally handicapped with autistic tendencies. Anyway, he does not like to have alot of people around, but we want to make sure he doesn't become a hermit and completely anti-social. So we have been trying to figure out a way to help him. Just by chance, my daughter, Heather, found a little yorkie the other day and she brought her to us to watch until we found her owners. (We contacted the Humane Society and local vets), anyway, while she was here, we noticed Jared coming out and being more social and interactive with the family while the dog was there. So after the yorkie found it's owner, we talked about it and talked with a counselor who thought it would be a great idea. We ended up driving by some friends house that happened to have some puppies for sale. Well, the puppies aren't ready to go to new homes yet, but they are ready in about two weeks. Long story short...we bought a puppy...Her name is Elora Danan Oxford and she will be moving in on July 1st or 2nd. Here is a picture of Elora Danan.

I guess I better get busy making cute cutouts for puppy pages.

Dogs are wonderful! I am allergic to mine but couldn't live without them. They are the best nonjudgmental friend you will have!
