What's One More?
My standard answer now to the children's requests of things they want is "we'll have to see and talk about it later." Hopefully much later. Long before we discovered that we were expecting a fourth child, we promised Colton that he could have a dog for his 5th birthday. We are at 22 days and counting. The dog arrived two days ago. Nathan is not here to help, so why not add a 6 week old miniature schnauzer to the picture. 'Little Boy' as they are calling him until Daddy comes home to name him is adjusting well to life at the Linos. Colton is so proud! Campbell has mixed emotions and Cassidy just wants to pull his tail.
We have the greatest of intentions with this dog and his caregiver - Colton. We will strive to teach him responsibility and the many things that go with it. Of course I am the one training both of the little guys right now. They are both quite cute together and I pray they have a fast and lasting companionship.
