This is Colby... our family's new labradoodle puppy!
Colby is also our latest lesson in how God sometimes gives us what we want as well as what we need.
Colby is also the fulfillment of a promise that Jay made to our sweet little girl about 3 years ago. A promise that he foolishly thought she would forget!! (she does have red streaks in her hair-we had just gotten home from the fall festival!)
We had been researching and exploring different dogs and stopped by the Humane Society to talk with them and get their opinion on dogs with children and allergies. Guess who had just come available for adoption that very morning! We were not at all expecting to find a dog. He's 5 months old, already housetrained, and pretty much crate trained as far as sleeping throught the night. He is more than we could have asked for or imagined. October just happens to be the month that the HS waives all their adoption fees so all they asked was that we make a donation. We also purchased our supplies for him from them.
I guess the best summary of Colby is that he is a gift!
