Khloe the d-o-g
The husband and I have wanted a dog since we got married. We had always imagined ourselves as dog people. But when we got married we lived in a apartment that did not allow for dogs. Once we purchased our house the search was on for a dog. The husband and I probably went to the SPCA everyday that they were open in search of a dog. In my head I imaged a cute black dog that I could name Reggie. I have no idea why I wanted a black dog or why I wanted to name him Reggie. But that is what I had my heart set on. After months of looking and being disappointed I saw a picture of a black and white pup on the ARF website. The website showed a link of a video of 5 black and white pups running around and playing. I forwarded the link to my husband. The next thing I know the husband sends me a message that he was going there after work. He had already called and there was only 1 pup left in the litter. The people at the shelter would hold the pup for him until the end of the day. I was so excited all during work to see if this was the pup. When I got to the shelter my husband was already filling out forms with this little barely 8 pound puppy in his lap. I asked if there were any other cute puppies and without looking up at me he said "we are taking this little girl home". I have never been this happy that I listened to my husband. We took took this puppy home and named her Khloe.
