Meet Benny

As I mentioned in my first post I wanted to keep everyone updated on the Rudy household and I think it's time I properly introduce Bennett. It's hard to believe that we will have had Benny with us for a year next week. I'll admit that we had no idea what we were in for when we decided to get a lab but it's been one heck of a ride. Also, one year ago we were in an apartment with no intentions of leaving. To make this story short, we picked up Bennett Thursday night, found a house with a yard on Sunday and made an offer the following Thursday. We laugh that our dog cost us A LOT of money. Clearly, it's not a good idea to have a puppy in an apartment when you live on the third floor. It didn't take long to realize that our puppy was going to grow and grow and grow and an apartment would not suit our new lifestyle.

I'll also admit that the first few weeks I was wondering what in the world we had done. He kept us up all night, peed all over the floor and required way more attention than I thought was possible for a dog. However, over the year, things have changed in the Rudy household. Now for those who know Benny know that he's a little hyper and not the most trained lab, but he sure is the cutest. We've grown to love our lil Benny over the year and couldn't imagine it without him in our life.

We have also become "those people" who are obsessed with their dog even though we swore we wouldn't. Over the last year I've managed to take a few hundred of pictures of him and here are just a few of my favorite:

Bennett is such a big part of life now and I'm sure you'll be hearing much more about our crazy adventures with our dog!

**Update: Just as I finished this post my sweet lil boy Benny jumped on my white couch with muddy paws. Oh the joys of having a puppy.....
