Happy National Dog Day!

Today we celebrate Rover. We got him over 6 months ago and have loved him so much. Watching him grow has been so fun, teaching him tricks and commands and just loving him. We chose Rover for our son Kyle, who had wanted a German Shepherd for several years but it was just bad timing. When my husband and I went to pick him we prayed that the Lord would allow us to pick the right dog for Kyle's personality. We looked and narrowed it down to two babies but Rover won simply because he wanted to be loved on without whining or wanting down. He was a playful little man and so we thought it would be awesome to get him. Bringing him home to Kyle was a day I will not forget - The joy and love he had for Rover was huge and I am glad to say after all this time Rover and Kyle are still best friends. 

Today Rover is 8 months old and he loves his play time with anyone but he wants it from Kyle. He loves his morning walk with us as a family (we walk 2 miles in the mornings) and if he misses it for some reason he pouts! 

He loves balls, I personally believe he has an obsession with any kind of ball! He popped our Volleyball, Soccer ball and Basketball! So when the boys play basketball Rover has to be placed in our back yard but it isn't without anger from him, he will pace the fence and bark the entire time the boys play.

Today is your day Rover, we love you!
