The Dog Debate continues at our house.
Chris is a DOG-kid! He loves dogs, has asked for a dog and even adopts strays that come into our yard!! And he's been like that for years.
But I have a HUGE list of reasons why we CAN'T get a dog right now....
One of my first reasons is the work of having an animal to care for. The kids barely manage to get their own simple chores completed. And there is no need to add anything to my plate right now, it won't get done:)
My second BIGGER reason, though, has been the girls...
Lydia isa little more cautious with dogs but quickly warms up to them.
But Anna is scared to death of dogs. She screams "bloody murder" if a dog comes into our yard, hides out in the house, or when visiting people with dogs she stays in the car.
If having to walk past a dog we often have to carry her... yes, even at 6.
We've talked about how awful it would be to get a dog that Anna would be fearful of...
but this last week, something has changed. First a neighbor brought over her dog and the kids had a blast chasing around the little dog.... yes, even Anna.
And then on our little visit to a friend's farm on Saturday, Anna became buddies with a new friend
a dog named Iggy.
The dog looks like she's smiling in this picture.
Maybe it's time for me to throw out that "can't" list???
Just so thankful to see my little girl overcoming this fear!! Not to say she loves dogs now, but she's at least understanding that some can be friendly:)
