Celebrating One Year With Our Dog Jethro!

One year ago tonight Brian and I drove to nearby Newport, RI to meet a puppy named Sobe that was being fostered there. I had seen him on Petfinder.com and fallen in love with his cute little face.

We had been talking about adding a third dog to our family for awhile, and I just had a feeling this puppy would be a perfect fit. When we arrived at Sobe’s foster parents’ home, and we met Sobe, Brian and I instantly fell in love. We took him home that night and renamed our new puppy Jethro because we’re huge fans of Mark Harmon’s NCIS character Leroy “Jethro” Gibbs.

Driving home with our new baby boy one year ago today!

I can’t believe it has been a whole year since Brian and I adopted our boy. He has added so much joy and love to our lives, and his two big doggy sisters adore him, too (most of the time!).

Happy anniversary to Jethro, our sweet, silly, mischievous little guy who makes us laugh every day!

Happy Jethroversary to us!

Me and Jethro tonight!
