The Dog Situation

Well after two weeks with our dog Benny, he was returned to the shelter. He was a four year old Beagle with alot of bad habits.
Including peeing on Whits bed, in our house and pooping. I guess going outside is to much hassle. So, we tried for a few extra days, the shelter was really pushing us to keep him, but the guilt couldnt get us to budge. The other things was we got this dog for the kids and he didnt pay attention to them. He followed me around. I dont need something following me around, I am good, just got the kids off to school. He would only listen to me (if he listened to anyone). So, we went him packing. The kids were a little sad at first, although we had told them this from the get go.
So, we may revisit the idea in the spring. Although I have enjoyed not having to bundle up at 11:00 at night to take a dog outside one last time. The kids seem over it also. They realized that having a dog is alot harder then it seems.

Pumpkin Patch

So the trees were still beautiful and Luc grabs the biggest pumpkin he can carry.

A photo of Trish and me waiting to get on the wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch.
We had to get some hot cider after the ride to warm up. We also tasted the homemade donuts. Trish gives them a thumbs up.
On to the scary halloween store after this.

Brrrrr...A cold day for the pumpkin patch

So it was a little chilly for our day at the pumpkin patch. My two nieces Taylor on the left and Gabrielle on the right were here for their Fall break. We always love when they visit.

Lucas checking out some animals. you gotta catch him when he is least expecting it to get a good smile.

The kids hanging out at FC Homecoming

Whitney swinging out over the pond at Julies house in Columbus. We went there for a cookout after the game. It didnt take long for the kids to get wet. Shocking that Whitney was the first kd to get wet.

Meet our newest family member

We would like to introduce you to Benny. He is a 3 year old Beagle that we rescued from a shelter on Saturday. He is a little heavy for a beagle and they told us he needed to lose some weight. That shouldn't be to difficult for him trying to keep up with my kids.

He is very sweet, calm and TRAINED!!!!!! The kids love him and are doing a great job helping with him. Even the not so fun jobs.

We have him on a trial basis for a week, however, we think we will keep him. We hope you can all meet him soon.
