Sometimes you go to the barn to hack your horse.
Sometimes you go to the barn to mostly ignore your horse because a sweet adorable little puppy has captured your heart.
This is a story about the later.
I don’t know the full story, but someone dropped an approx eight-week-old female lab mix puppy at our barn this week. When my trainer put the pictures of her on Facebook, I kind of melted.
Okay, I seriously melted.
shamelessly begged asked politely all day if my husband would consider the puppy. We had been talking about getting a third dog for a while, because our Boston is getting older and our Springer is middle aged… surely a younger dog would keep the household fresh and alive! After looking at a few puppies through a local rescue, we decided it would be best to wait for my husband to finish with his graduate degree.
my this puppy showed up.
After having a rational discussion with my husband, we agreed that it still was probably not a good time to get the puppy. Someone had inquired with my trainer already, and surely the cute little puppy was in no danger of finding a home fast.
Then I went to the barn and saw her.
And she was skinny…
And she had a wormy belly…
And she had fleas…
And it was thundering off in the distance…
You see where this is going.
I got a tentative ‘yes’ from the husband, with the agreement that we would do a 48 hour trial and if it was a really bad idea we would adopt her out. About 4 hours into this, she was asleep in his arms.
So, meet Pascale. Formally she is Pascael 5S, because instead of the new phone I was supposed to get today – I got a puppy. I think it’s much better this way 🙂

Oh. So. Cute. A puppy is way better than a phone. I’ve gotten my last three dogs in a similar fashion…it all works out 🙂
Aww! So cute! I love puppies! 🙂 My dog also likes to snuggle and lay in peoples arms….and she’s eighty pounds and really big.
Congrats on your new addition! The sleepy time is a good indicator that it’ll work out, right?
OMG so cute!!!!
Oh my goodness, she’s adorable! And I love her name, that’s super cute. Especially the “formal” one 😉
SHE IS PRECIOUS!
I’m completely jealous-the husband says I can have only one “large” pet….and I picked the 1200lb one instead of a puppy.
Woohoo! Much better than a phone! Though I really want the 5S!
congrats on the new puppy!
Awwwwww I’m in love!!
SO. CUTE. I have a lab, best dog ever. 🙂 We’ve taken in a TON of puppies, kittens, even horses, like this. They make the best babies.
Awwww, I would totally take a puppy over an iphone! Congrats on the new addition, she’s adorable!
