We live in a 2BR 825 sq ft apartment with a Five Year old and her 32907427 Toys and Sasquatch. Space is at a premium but for two weeks we lived out my dream of owning a dog.
My brother went away to Sweden for a month leaving his King Charles Caviler with us. His name is Finn and he is the sweetest, most gentle, loving dog I've ever met.
Peyton transformed into a responsible five year old insisting on waking up getting dressed and getting ready on time to make sure she could walk Finn. She played with him for hours and insisted we go to the Dog park and the pet shop. She held his leash lovingly and begged to let him sleep in her bed.
She was protective and nurturing. For 14 days she begged to keep him and wished that my brother would just live in Sweden leaving Finn with us. Much to our dismay Finn went home and we are left trying to convince Michael to have one of our own. Sadly he prefers another baby to a dog. Here is to hoping we get a Dog.
