Meet Domino

April 26, 2010

Today, we ordered a dog. He’ll be ready for delivery in June.

This dog actually poses when you point a camera at him

John, the kids and I loaded into the car today for a two hour drive to Kentucky to meet Domino. We got through the security gate and parked in the lot they directed us to. Through the chain link fence, we could see inmates walking and exercising in the prison yard. Occasionally, you would see an inmate walking a dog. Then, we spotted a woman walking a very prancy Dalmatian toward the lobby. When we went inside, we found a very sweet, very gentle, very spotty dog that we all loved. We spent about 20 minutes with the kids walking him around the room and petting him. He was very well-behaved and very calm around the kids. By the end of our visit, he was leaning against John with his eyes half-closed while John petted him. What a great dog! Can’t wait until June. John and I will go back, without the kids, for a graduation ceremony and meet the inmates who trained him. They’ll get the chance to tell us everything they know about Domino and we’ll get to chance to tell them what this dog will mean to our family.

Take that cancer.
