For an early birthday present, I surprised Spencer with a puppy today. This is the kid equivalent to hitting the lottery. He was shocked, in awe and then totally in love with that little fur baby. It took him about 30 minutes to settle on a name. Kim, Jimmy and I liked the name 'Banjo', IV liked BINGO, Mom liked Butch, but Spencer wanted to name him Bowser. Bowser is one of his favorite players on his Mario Brothers game and is a tough guy.
Originally I was seeking an Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix and I wanted a female, but Kim found this one with a guy that rescues and re-homes dogs near Charlotte and was certain that his personality was the right fit for Spencer and convinced me to meet the puppy. It looks like the puppy is a Rottweiler mix. He is calm, loving, and a total snuggle-puff. Just like Spencer. It was a perfect match! We went to PetSmart this evening and got a leash, food, treats, toys, etc. It was so much fun! By the way, why didn't anyone tell me that PetsMart is THE meet and greet for gay guys? Seriously, the dog food aisle was like a gay singles bar!
A big THANK YOU to John and Melissa for letting us borrow their crate, Kim for the doggie delivery and Jimmy for setting up for the puppy. Spencer is the happiest kid in the world tonight! It makes my heart warm!
