Dexter the friendly dog!

This is our wonderful (sometimes terrible) little man. We love him, we hate him, we can't stay away from him. Here is a little history about Dexter...

One fine day in November (two days after Thanksgiving, to be exact), the hubs and I ventured to our local Humane Society. We had been talking about getting a puppy, but we weren't sure what kind. We knew we didn't want a little dog that was high-maintenance (but let's face it -- ALL puppies are high maintenance). As we walked in, we were bombarded with all kinds of cute puppies and dogs who were ready to go to any loving home.

We walked around a little bit, then went back home, overwhelmed with our decision to make. We had decided to get one of the little black puppies, and had narrowed it down to three. One was a little older and a girl, and the other two were about the same age and boys. 

The next day, we brought our good friends (Liz and John) with us to help in the decision-making process. We decided to see one of the boy puppies first, and his name was TRES (like the french #3). He was so cute and energetic, we couldn't resist. That was our Dexter. 

To this day we aren't really sure how we named him Dexter. Liz was reading off cute puppy names she had looked up online, and when she got to Dexter, I just knew. Also, for anyone wondering, he is NOT named after Dexter the serial killer from the TV show (no matter HOW much Joseph wants to say he is)! 

That is our little story, and here are some more recent pictures of the little man...

This picture above and the next two were taken at the family farm in April of this year. Beautiful dog, beautiful day! 

This one could be an advertisement for something, right? He makes you want to buy puppy stuff! 

So here's to puppies and inconveniences that are worth it in time...

Hello Friends! Last post I told you all that I may have gotten my dream job.....

Well, I DID! I will be a nurse in the OR! I am so excited. My new job starts the second week of March. Be praying that everything goes smoothly and that I will enjoy it like I think I will. It will also be a 5-days-a-week job, so I will have to be there around 6 every morning, but I will get off around 3pm. That will give me more time with our puppy, Dexter, and time every day to get little things done around the house! I'm going to become such an old person! Haha. 

The hubs still hasn't found out for sure about Dental School for this year, but he is already studying for the DAT (Dental Aptitude Test) again. He is also planning on taking an anatomy course this summer at UAB or Alabama. I am so proud of him working hard to achieve his dream (though it is frustrating right now). We are praying that through this year, God will show us what Joseph is supposed to do as far as school goes. 

There's our update in short, and you will hear from us again soon! 

Only 5 more weeks til my new job!
