This past month marked a change in the Andersen house that hasn't been since the Andersen house was made. We made the decision to put Slang to sleep. :( We got Slang way back when Chris and I were dating and he was such a good dog.
We wanted a fun dog who would be good with kids and he was certainly that!
I still remember the day that my roommate, Brenda, and I drove to who knows where after seeing an ad in the newspaper. I wanted to surprise Chris with a dog for Christmas and we knew we wanted a Boston Terrier so when I saw a puppy for sale that was the last one in the litter I wanted it! He was such a cute puppy and Chris was so surprised. Even tho we had to keep him hid in Chris' apartment so as to not pay the pet deposit :) - he cooperated pretty well and learned quickly to not bark. Which I'm convinced is why he chirped like a bird instead!!
Poor Slang - because of his itchiness - spent lots of time looking like this :)
He really was our first baby and we spent lots of time loving on him
until all the real babies started showing up :)
We're so glad he was a part of most of the kids early years. He was so good with all of them and we are glad that they love animals and aren't afraid of dogs because of having one around so much.
|Can you find Slang in this picture?!?|
We LOVED having a dog and it will be hard to find one as good as Slang again! We will have another dog but before we get one 2 things have to happen:1. Everyone in the house needs to be able to go to the bathroom by themselves!2. We want to live somewhere with some land so that the dog - and kids - would have room to run outside.
IN the meantime, we will always have lots of great memories with Slang.
