Meet Bernie

 

Meet Bernie, the newest member of our family. He is a ~2 year old Bichon Poodle mix with short little legs and a incredibly sweet personality. We brought him home from the shelter on Saturday, and I am happy to report that despite some understandable anxiety from all the change, he is adjusting very well to his new home!

I’d spent months searching Petfinder almost every day for a dog that would be a good fit for us. When we took Sophie to meet Bernie at the shelter, there was no question he was the dog for us. They hit it off immediately.

On the way home, we stopped at one of the self service dog wash places because he was disgusting from the shelter. I knew it would cause him stress, but he really needed to be cleaned up.

Once we got home, he promptly made himself comfortable demanding belly rubs and staking out his own spot on the couch. He and Sophie also spent a large part of the weekend running around in the muddy back yard together. Needless to say they both need a bath, but I’m going to hold off on putting him through that again.

On Sunday we took him to our vet for a full check up and some piece of mind. She assured us he is healthy, if in need of some TLC, and now we are just trying to make his adjustment to our home as smooth as possible. He gets anxiety if we go upstairs without him, and he will not let me anywhere near him with a body harness. Hopefully with some time and a whole lot of love, he will start to trust us and the nervousness will subside.

  • Dublin was amazing. I think I left a piece of my heart in Ireland. We were enjoying ourselves so much we didn’t stop to take many pictures. We explored the city, did a walking tour, spent time with old friends and made new ones, and went on a traditional Irish music pub crawl. It may sound cheesy but it truly was one of the highlights of our entire trip. If ever given the chance, do one. I was so sad to leave Ireland but I can’t wait to go back and explore the entire country.
  • We spent two days exploring Edinburgh. It’s a beautiful city with so much to see. We spent most of our time in the old part of the city walking the Royal Mile. We did a whiskey tour and saw an amazing collection at The Whiskey Experience. We also did a walking tour of the city, and saw where J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter. I also dragged David on a tour of the underground city and haunted graveyard - Greyfriars Kirk. The graveyard contains the famous haunted Black Mausoleum and headstones with many names familiar to fans of Harry Potter (Rowling allegedly got inspiration walking the graveyard). But most importantly, the graveyard is famous for Greyfriars Bobby, a loyal little dog that spent 14 years sitting by his owners grave. He’s has his own headstone now and people bring him sticks and dog toys. His statue outside the graveyard is the most photographed in Scotland.
