Welcome to the Family!!

We (well, I) decided that it was time to fully slip into the Missoula way way of life, so after much reservation from Matt, we chose to foster a dog in need (FYI, Matt, we are not giving her back). She had been fostered a couple times and returned to the shelter because she had too much love to spread (read, abundant energy). HER name was Blue, but I think it’s cruel and unusual punishment to name a little gal a dudes name (you’re my BOY Blue!). So we have been going back and forth about names. Most of you know that Matt rescued another dog named Charlie many years ago, who has made many cameo appearances on Big Sky Bound. Charlie lives the good life in Bozeman with his parents and we can’t wait to get the two pups together for a lively romp. Just so Charlie knows what he’s getting into, here are Blue’s stats:

I apologize in advance for how many spots this new little gal will get in upcoming posts. Dog parents can get a little crazy I have heard….

    Mariah (c. “All I Want For Christmas”)
    Ramona (as in Quimby, age 8)
    Delilah (whore)
    Zoe (with or without the umlaut)
    Montana (duh)
    Lola (she was a showgirl)
