Em had a few days off for a mini-spring break, and I had the best time spending all day with her!! One of the things that we did together was volunteer at the Lynchburg Humane Society! I got some photos of some of the sweetest animals, and we got to love on some sad puppies. I swear, I need to buy a farm and adopt all these dogs! But... I already asked Michael, and no more animals in the house for us right now... so please, someone go adopt these animals!!
Have you guys checked out the Lynchburg Humane Society yet? We seriously LOVE it there and are just so impressed with their facility and their seriously amazing staff. We got our sweet pup from the Humane Society this past winter, (#manningthemutt), and we love visiting and loving on the sweet pets there! Me and Emmie were both SO excited when her class decided to take a field trip there! The first schedule trip got cancelled due to the snowstorm that shut schools here down for weeks.
The staff and volunteers at the Lynchburg Humane Society are so sweet, they had special activities with the kids and they got to run around and play with the puppies! It really was so much fun! Even if you aren't looking for a new pet, they always love for people to come visit the animals- and they are of course taking donations for food, toys, and blankets for the pets!
I was totally expecting to be posting about our trip to the Christmas Tree lot, where we pick out a tree and bring it home to decorate. And, I'm sure that blog post will be coming soon, but not today. Because we left for a Christmas Tree and ended up bringing home... a puppy instead! Ha!
Meet... MANNING! (#manningthemutt)
On our way to the Christmas Tree Lot, we decided to stop in at the Lynchburg Humane Society to love on the cats & dogs there. That's where we met our sweetest new little guy and couldn't leave him there overnight! So, we brought him home that night!
He's a mutt and a giant mix... mostly a lot of guesses on our side of things, but nothing is really known! Manning has been a great pup so far- crate trained, so good with Emmie, and full of snuggles!!
And because Em was so excited about her Christmas outfit she talked Michael into... here are a few photos before we got Manning!
We are so excited about our new puppy.. .and hopefully one of these days we will actually get our Christmas Tree... and I'll be sharing some photos from that too! ;)
