Husband and I bought our house in january...and we got our dog two days before the closing. Buying a house was mainly motivated by my THREE YEARS worth of pestering to get a dog, which we couldn't do in our apartment.
So meet Walter, our black lab, giant schnauzer mix. He's 65 lbs of fuzzy, not-so-bright, adorable fury.
I think this is my favorite photo of him. Yes, my old couch was hideous. But it was free!
And he doesn't understand the concept of his tie-out. He just goes out there and sits. And guards my quilt while it's drying in the sun.
