Puppy Love

Good morning!  I had such a fun vacation and week away and so much to share starting with (drum roll please)  I got a new dog!  We have been dreaming about and shopping for a pooch for the family for awhile now and while we were camping I kept seeing dogs everywhere and just knew that the time had come.  So upon arriving back home I checked out our local shelters website and found just what we'd been looking for   - a terrier mix with wiry hair, 20 pounds, adult, boy and cute as a button!

I decided to go visit the shelter on my own with a plan to call Mr. Veen and the kids if it seemed like a good match.  I spotted our guy right away and quickly filled out the paper work needed to visit with him.  The minute he came into the viewing room he came right up to me and cuddled up and I knew that he was the one!  It was pretty much love and first sight and I am happy to report that Henry is adapting wonderfully to our little family.  He is fully house trained, crate trained and doesn't bark or jump on people.  He doesn't care about our kitties (although they aren't thrilled with him), and he absolutely loves going in the car and on walks.  I can't say enough good things about him.  He's the bees knees!

So expect to see more of Henry in the future and get used to my mushing and gushing because I'm in full blown puppy love!


  1. Henry is one lucky boy to have a family like you! I love him already :)

  2. I am looking forward to meeting him.

  3. He is so cute and I love the name! So smart to get a grown up, trained dog, very very smart!!
