What the pup?


So yesterday I went with my friend Jess, to Petsmart so she could get some toothpaste for her dog Bender. Well it was pet adoption day. Jessica squealed with delight when she saw all the animals, and immediately rushed over to all the cages to peek at all the cute and abandoned animals. I nagged her to not, because it always makes me so sad, and I always end up finding one that just I absolutely love, and send a picture to Kory, (who usually always tells me all the reasons why it is a bad idea) and the whole process is just painful. Well yesterday, it was the same, I found a dog, a beautiful Rottweiler named "Celeste" (I know, not the best dog name) she was just breath taking, and so mild and so soft and gentle. She looked at me with her big brown eyes, and she just stole my heart. So I called Kory, and he said "Will they let you take her for a test drive" (to see how she does with Zoe) so I asked, and sure enough they do a foster program, where you can take the dog for as long as you want to see if it will adjust to your family! What did we have to lose right? So Jess and I both excitedly picked up some puppy treats, and took her to get a scrub down at this great groomer "rub-a-dub doggie" which is like a self serve car wash for dogs! (i'ts next to Sams club in provo) She was soo cooperative and good.
Her coat and such cleaned up really well, and she smelled GREAT!

Then we took her home to meet Kory and Zoe. Kory (like I thought) found her absolutely breathtaking. Zoe on the other hand, was scared to death! Which is what we are working on right now. We are hoping that she will calm down and just relax, and not panic every time she comes in the room, so we can keep her, but if she doesn't we have to have them take her back.

But here are some pictures of her for you all to see...

She kind of looks scary here, but I love her coloring on her face and browsZoe, this is her safety, this is where she resides when big dogs are around.
When you try to play with her she just rolls over and asks for a tummy rub, (sound familiar Kyle?)

Wow that's a big commitment! But she is really cute!

Ps. you should make your font a little lighter. It's a little hard to read sometimes.

Oh, and funny thing. Yesterday at my mom's everyone was talking about baby names and my dad suggested Celeste! It was totally meant to be.

Kyle said...

She's adorable.

Rotweilers are alot of fun. And they're the beefy, dopey cousins to Dobermans. What more could you ask for?

yeah i couldn't believe it when you sent me that picture, i thought you were joking. we thought she was a weiner dog though, she looked little. i never thought Kory would have dogs in his house, so this is interesting. good luck with the adjustment!

She's beautiful! I'm a BIG DOG gal, so I say you keep her...

...but only if she can dance to LOVE POTION #9 like another Celeste I/we know...

Hey Amy,
I haven't commented because I was waiting to see if you were gonna keep her. But now I'm inpatient and realize it may take longer than a few days. It's for sure I have no experience. How's it going? Is she pretty well trained?

That is a big dog. You guys are nuts! I'm glad Kory has a wife that shares his love for animals.

She is such a cute dog. She looks just like my husband's family's dog that just died (I did a post about her earlier this month), except a bit skinnier. Their rotty was seriously such a good dog and so sweet. I think you've made a good choice!

So how is it going? Are you going to keep her? How is Zoe adjusting? Our Zoe would be terrified I think. We took her to play with our friend's Great Dane and she wanted nothing to do with him. We are interested to find out how things are going.
