We stayed with Reagan and Nate Dennison, who were so kind to let me and two 18 month olds invade their home. They had just brought home a 7-week old puppy that they adopted. She was the size of some of the girls stuffed animals. Ruthie LOVED the puppy. Every night when we would come back to the house she would wrestle with her.
Almost made me want to get another puppy, but I quickly got over that.
