My new hubby and I had decided early on that we wanted to wait at least five years before we had kids, to have time with each other, enjoying each other. I think it was the right choice, but our house seemed a little empty, and so we decided to get a dog. Buying a dog is easier than you expect, yet harder too. There are so many cute dogs out there, you want to pick all of them, but then you find the one. The one that you were meant to have. Baxter spoke to us, wagging he's little tail, his face lit up with hope. When I held him, I knew, he was ours and we were his.
