Hairball

June 29, 2010

Bloggers get a chance to show off their 4-legged (or 2-legged, 8-legged?) BFFs in this week's I Heart Faces photo challenge.

 Our sweet soul was found wandering the streets, a few days away from euthanization at an over-crowded Humane Society, when we rescued him 5 years ago.  Andy and I always laugh when we think back to the day we met Reilly ("Richie" at the time), when he first shook and we witnessed gobs of dog hair flying in every direction.  But we looked at eachother, then down at his sad eyes looking back up at us and agreed, "He's probably just nervous."  Yea.  You know those Cathy comic strips where she's always spewing sweat??  Reilly spews hair.  For the first year or so, the constant vacuuming was manageable. But a couple rugrats and their toy collection later, and a clean household is just a lost cause these days.  Would we take him in again?  In a heartbeat.  

"This is hard to ask, but I have to know...Am I adopted?"
