House Guest

We have a house guest.  My sister’s dog, Nara, will be staying with us while she is deployed. 


I am not really a dog person.  Although, lately I have been toying with the idea of getting a dog.  It’s kind of nice having a temporary dog.  Nara is really not my kind of breed though.  She’s well behaved and she provides a good excuse to go take a 20-30 minute walk alone.  Too bad that walk has to happen first thing in the morning before a cup of joe. 

Anyway, here are a few pictures of Kristiana getting a little too friendly with Nara.  She’s such a sweet dog.  Whenever the kids get a little too “in her face,”  she comes over to me for protection.  This is good because she doesn’t bark or bite.  She just walks away.  Don’t worry, Sarah, we are taking good care of her.  She’s made herself at home and is part of the family.


I swear I was telling Kristiana to get off the dog while I was taking this picture. I don’t know what message it sent Kristiana to take a picture of her doing something bad.

I'm not a dog person either. I have been called heartless but I'm just not that into animals. At least not domestic ones. Oddly though, if I were forced to get a dog I would want a pug. I've heard they are actually good with kids, shed very little, and I like that they are medium sized. Both huge dogs and tiny dogs get on my nerves :) Your sis's dog looks like he is very patient though, and I'm glad she isn't a burden on top of everything you've got going on. She is very pretty, I do have to admit. Did you have animals growing up?
