Unfortunately, this year we're chillaxin' at home. Sorta. We hired the babysitter for a few hours in the afternoon so Mommy and Daddy can go see the new Batman movie. What can I say? I sorta love Batman (he's my fave superhero!)
But what else makes this day super special? It's Dexter's Birthday!!
Woke him up from a nap
He is a whopping three years old today. He's college aged, in dog years. Maybe even graduated by this time.
Want to hear the quick story of how we ended up with crazy here? Brandon wasn't so keen on getting a dog, but when I said he could get a cat (bargaining power) he couldn't refuse. He gave me some guidelines though. No beagles. No small dogs. No big dogs. No girl dogs. No dumb dogs. Oh, ok. We decided to get a dachshund, so I started my search. We stopped at a pet store one day and saw the cutest border collie puppy ever and Brandon started liking them again. He grew up with a border collie and loved it!
While perusing internet ads for a dachshund still, I came across a photo of Dexter, posted by the breeder. I showed Brandon and did a cost analysis (he's into charts) and we decided to get him! The next week he flew on over from the Big Island (we were still in Hawaii, remember?) and I picked him up from the airport, a cute little 8 week old puppy. Awww.
Honorable birthday mention to our kitty, Winston, who also turns three on Sunday. Yep, close in age!
