We're Adopting a ... Puppy!

I bet you thought I was going to say baby! ;) We aren't in that season of our lives yet. We'll get there when the time is right. As for now, let me tell you about the newest addition to the Greer family!

For those of you who know me, you know I love Boston Terriers. I just think they are the cutest! When I was in high school, we adopted a BT that needed a home. His name was Pugly! I wish I had a picture of him, but sadly, I don't. He was absolutely precious. Pugly is no longer with us, but I have loved Bostons ever since.

The hubby and I have always talked about getting a Boston. Even before we were married. So, after a couple months of blissful marriage, we decided to get a dog. My sweet hubby wanted a Golden Retriever or a Chocolate Lab, but for now we decided to go with the Boston since we are still renting and have a smaller yard.

Thus, the search began. We didn't even really consider the idea of buying a dog from a breeder or other source. I wanted to rescue our pet. I'm an animal lover and it makes me sad to think unwanted animals are euthanized everyday. There are both national and regional Boston Terrier rescue organizations. We, however, found our BT through www.adoptapet.com.

Without further ado, I would like to introduce Rueger Greer! Yes, his name is Rueger like the gun; it's just spelled slightly different. The gun is spelled Ruger. Just a bit of trivia for those interested!
