I can’t really say I have ever been an animal person. We never had dogs growing up, and the one cat my family had was never really attached to me. So you can imagine when Ian asked if I wanted a dog, what my answer was.
A few short months later, I found myself looking through the eBay pet ads for puppies. I would send Ian pictures of sweet puppies and joke with him about getting them until one day, he responded with ‘lets pick that one up.’ Totally against my risk taking nature, I told him ‘Okay! Lets go tomorrow.’ I had a feeling the moment I met the little guy in the picture, there wasn’t going to be any way I wouldn’t take him home. And that’s exactly what happened.
And thats when we met our little puppy Chuck. And yes, we did name him after Chuck Bass, (Charles when he’s bad), from Gossip Girl. He is a Yorkie Maltese mix (Morkie), although we joke that he looks like a toy German Shepherd sometimes.
Since then, I am more in love with a dog than I ever thought I could be. I look forward to seeing him every day when I come home from work and cuddling with him on the couch on my down time. I guess you could say, I am now an animal lover.
Here is our sweet little pup one year later!
Happy Birthday Chuck (a few weeks late)! You make us so happy!
