Haloo, Martigan!

20 Dec



We didn’t think we’d find a dog this quickly. But you know what they say, when the world closes a door, God opens a window.

We’ve been trying to adopt a dog since October. We’ve wanted a dog since I wrote My List, and between now and then we lost a dog, gave back a dog, so, yeah, this dog has been a long tine coming. But Martigan is perfect.

He’s funny, fuzzy, and non-sneezy. He loves us, loves Logan, and loves kids. He hates riding in the car, which honestly I find rather funny. He’s part cat, soft as a bunny, and super smart. Already house trained, but keeps bringing his toys outside and sticks inside. He’s young – only one – and brings a much-needed energy into our lives. I didn’t expect to hit the doggy lottery so soon, but I’m so glad we did. I’m grateful and humbled, and happy to finally have a dog who’s not sick, and who’s the right fit. Hooray for keeping a goal crossed of f the list, and praise God for a new puppy!

Update: Our last dog, Westley, found the prefect home, who signed the adoption papers the day we adopted Martigan. Thanks DPS for making two families more complete.
