New member of my family...

Ok, so yes, we're weak. We fell in love! We were supposed to keep Luke until Saturday. The family who wanted him fell through. The rescue lady goes to Petco every Saturday and Sunday to try to get all of her rescue dogs adopted. Luke went Saturday and John and I were hoping a nice family would take him. Well, one did, and they returned him. Apparently the guy was "allergic". I called her Saturday night to tell her John and I would like to volunteer and help her out. She told me about Luke going home with someone then getting brought back. We were pretty upset about it. This poor little dog. We decided if he didn't get adopted by 3pm on Sunday, he was ours. Well, she called back last night to see if we would foster him for another night. It was all too much for us! We wanted him! We wanted him home!! So, we said we were coming to get our dog. He just fell right into our lives and our family. Today we went volunteer. (Luke stayed home )It was too sad for me. All these dogs just wanting to be loved and go to a good home. I wanted to take every single one home. This morning we decided to take the dogs for a walk. John isn't smiling because he was trying to get the dogs to look. He was happy though : ) We went to Starbucks for a mocha for him and a peppermint hot chocolate for me, thankyouverymuch! Then we stopped next door at the dog bakery for some yummy treats for the dogs.
This was taken while we were cooking breakfast. (you know I like my eggs and pancakes!) They have been doing well together, seeing as how Riley is the most spoiled dog in the world!
How could we have ever let him go? This is what I wake up to. We love you Luke, welcome to the family!!!
