Our Jolene-girl

So Monday, this happened.

Meet Jolene, our new puppy!

And yes, she was named for the Dolly Parton song.

She’s a 10 month old boxer mix and we are already so in love with her. Ryan and I met at the Humane Society to look at a dog and we found her! We’re all still getting to know each other, but so far, everything has been about as good as it could be! There was a moment when she started sniffing O.B.’s tank and we had to move him. No eating your brother. She’s a little younger than we thought we would bring home, but we’re okay with that.

We’ve started playing in the yard with her and taking her on walks. And this morning I started training her a tiny bit. She mostly knows sit, we’re learning stay, come, and heel.

Our first family picture!

We’re so excited about this stage of our life!
