Should I keep the dog?

Has anyone ever adopted a dog from the SPCA and then wondered, "Should I keep this dog?"  I wonder with our busy lives if we are the best caretakers for this sweet dog who has so much love to give?  They gave us about a week and a half to think about it as we got the dog on St. Patrick's Day, so today is our deadline to decide whether to keep him.

Our dog is two years old and my son is already attached to him.  Since St. Patrick's Day, so much has changed.  That day that we walked by Zachary's pizza and saw him, it seemed like it would be so much easier.

I'll blog tomorrow about our decision.....

dogs from SPCA, new life to old bungalow!!!!!!

We have a new dog from the East Bay SPCA!  He is so great and brings new life to our new bungalow!  I highly recommend the SPCA in Oakland, they have so many adorable dogs, and they even gave us a week trial with a borrowed crate, leash, collar, etc.  Why go to a breeder when you can adopt a sweet dog and give it a new home!  It is also a wonderful place to volunteer.  We saw our neighbor there with his son volunteering.  Someday I want to volunteer there.

Wooden benches, Farm tables - Reclaimed wood

I've always wanted  a wooden bench and a reclaimed wood farm table.  I don't have room for either right now, but I can dream!  I found the one I want from Elsie Green.

The company  is owned by Laurie Furber, who left a job overseeing the mail-order division of pottery barn to spend more time with her family and her husband JP, a former Gap buyer.  The headquarters is about 10 miles from her Alamo, California home.

Elsie Green, formerly Greenhouse Design studios,  stocks new products made of organic and repurposed materials, as well as vintage items that are recycled.

The company still writes thank you notes for each order and hopes to build a company they can pass on to their children.
