Once I decided that I wanted to get a dog and that the timing was right, I prayed about it and talked it over with my husband. Then, I started doing my research (of course!). Things really got rolling in May.
I found myself searching online for dogs, as well as information about various different dog topics. I even began "nesting" for a dog that we hadn't even found yet. I was busy, busy cleaning and "dog-proofing" our apartment.

I first emailed about Honey Bee on May 29. We met her and her foster mom, Christy, on June 3... we instantly fell in love with her (and her friend LayLee - unfortunately, we can't have a pit in the apartment complex we live in)!

When her foster mom brought her to our apartment, she immediately recognized me - it was such a great moment. She seems to be adjusting pretty well to being here with us. She's had some pretty bad / negative experiences in her past, so she's overly cautious and hyper-vigilant. As she grows to trust us, we're hoping her self-confidence will grow.

We're really looking forward to seeing her blossom. This is just the beginning of an amazing journey for Jeremy, me, and our Honey Bee! (so, stay tuned)
