Well, in case you haven’t heard, The Smiths have a new family member!
Meet Ramona Smith.
She’s about 6 months old, Hound/Shepherd Mix, and currently weighs in at 29 lbs (although we’re expecting her weight to double). We adopted her from a shelter (which I HIGHLY recommend)! We couldn’t pick her up until yesterday & she’s as sweet as pie! 🙂 We talked about changing her name all weekend, but ended up just keeping her as she is. I love the name Ramona for these 2 reasons:
1. Ramona Quimby (Who else loved her as a kid?)
2. Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim (one of my favorite movies!)
Both Ramonas are equally AWESOME, but our Ramona is the BEST. I really think her name just fits her!
We’ve been dog owners for about 24 hours now, and it has been wonderful. She gets in her kennel with very little push/encouragement. She slept all through the night in her kennel without making a peep. She hasn’t cried or barked ONCE. I don’t worry about her getting into mischief because she doesn’t leave my side. I taught her how to sit already… NO JOKE! She won’t do it unless I have a treat, but she caught on SO FAST it was amazing! I’ve also watched about 100 episode of The Dog Whisperer. I’m so thankful I have the rest of the summer with her at home!
I’m already dreading having to go back to work next month & leaving her here…
So that’s the latest & greatest in our home!
Hope you’re all staying cool!!
