If you follow me on Instagram, you know that yesterday, I adopted this handsome boy instead!!
Saturday, I realized I am NOT a cat person.
I’ve grown up only with dogs, so I have the experience. We have dogs now, including one rescue (which is honestly the greatest dog I’ve ever known). And dogs actually interact with you and you can walk them…unlike most cats
Simply put, I love dogs.
So yesterday, when I saw this face looking at me from a kennel…well…I just couldn’t say no.
Meet Kovu (yes, Kovu as in from the Lion King 2 heehee)
His original name was Tattoo, but I had my heart set on Kovu. He’s 9 months old, a heeler/australian shepherd mix, and filled with energy and happiness, but isn’t a barker at all. He gives lots of kisses too! The Humane Society we adopted him from was having a 70% off sale for outdoor kennel dogs, so he only cost $25. How on earth could any owner ever surrender such a fabulous dog?!?!
He napped on the truck ride home and when we introduced him to our other dogs, they all hit it off IMMEDIATELY! Even our alpha semi-mean aussie shepherd likes him! Last night, they chased each other all around the yard and tuckered themselves out haha
I’m SO excited to take him down to Corpus Christi with me– we’re gonna have so much fun going to the beach, taking long walks, car rides, and just veggin together at my apartment. Here’s to a future full of fun!
What kind of pets do you have? Are any of them adopted?
I have a feeling he’ll be making many more blog cameos– especially since we’re both freckled haha I wonder if he likes lifting weights??
