Big News!

We got a dog!
What? Were you expecting something else?
Meet Yoda.

Yoda was abandoned on the side of the road in a broken crate.

My in-laws, Aaron and Ashley, were driving to work when they saw the crate and stopped to see if they could find the owner. It's a good thing they did because it was clear Yoda had been there at least overnight, if not longer. He was shaking, and was absolutely filthy.
No one in the area recognized him.
So Aaron and Ashley took Yoda home. They posted an ad online saying they found this adorable puppy. They even put up posters in the area where they found him.

Tom and I have been thinking about getting a dog, so when Aaron and Ashley asked if we wanted to take him in, we said YES!
You can see why we decided to call him Yoda.
Yoda is the most cuddly dog in the whole world! He just loves to snuggle.
He loves to lick too.

And he's REALLY good with kids. (Finn had been playing/eating in the dirt.)

We couldn't have asked for a better puppy.
I am so in love with this dog.


  1. He is SO stinkin' cute!!! PS - WAAAY cute pic of you there at the end!!!!

  2. I'm so jealous!

    And who does that to a dog!? We should find the person who left him and send PETA after their stinkin butts!

    I want a puppy now...

  3. Congrats! I love that black and white picture of him. Very cute!

  4. How cute! Congrats on the new addition to your adorable little family. Yoda is a great name for him, love his ears!

  5. We're glad Yoda went to a good home. And we're especially glad that Finn will get to play with him when he goes over to your house. That works out pretty great!

  6. Hey Lesli - ever heard the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf?

  7. Mmm. So handsome he is. Good puppy parents you are. Time with nephews he needs. Soon. Soon.
