l'Histoire de Pontouf

Have we mentioned recently how much we love our little dog Pontouf?
It's hard to believe how much she has grown since the wee little 3 month old pup she was when we first adopted her. Look how tiny she was!
One thing I regret is that we didn't really take that many pictures of her when we first got her. That's one downside of having a great big camera, is that you don't take the time to pull it out to capture all the little moments, so we only have a few from her tiny puppy days.

This is the picture Matt first saw of her on the animal rescue website. She was named Alley at the time, and we drove out to Youngsville to meet her after seeing this picture. And of course, she came home with us. Who could resist that little nose and big brown puppy eyes? (Definitely not me).
Now we can't remember ever not having her. She adds so much life to our house with her sweet puppy personality, a little warm somebody for us to come home to and snuggle up with. We've tried hard not to become some of those weirdos who treat their dog like a child (I have resisted buying her any puppy sweaters or anything), but she is definitely part of our family. These three Broglis are very happy together.

He's such a cutie!! We started to pop in on you Tuesday evening - we took a meal to one of your neighbors on Tillamook Dr. and I was tempted to pop by but figured you all were at work (it was about 5pm). Maybe next time I will think ahead and call you before we head over that way! Hope you're both well -
