Welcome Sadie, Thor and Allie

A little about my pets:

Our first two pets were our kitties, Thor and Allie.  They're siblings- I'd like to believe they're twins, because they look so much alike!  
Thor is our mischievous trouble-maker, eating everything that gets in his way.  He is also the snuggliest kitty I've met- he loves to crawl into peoples' laps and make new friends.  I'll never forget the day that a government worker came to our apartment to ask about my husbands' old roommate for a background check, and the moment the lady sat on the couch, Thor went and sat in her lap.  I was mortified!  Allie, his very mellow sister, counterbalances all Thor's crazy antics.  She is super cuddly, quiet, and is mellow.  She is so gentle and easy-going; Sadie (our dog) and our foster dogs can go right up to her and nibble on her, and she doesn't care.  I'm amazed by how much personality our feline friends have!  We found these two as tiny kittens on a free Craigslist ad- we met their "owner" at a parking lot, and brought them home; we've been loving them up for about 3 1/2 years now!

We adopted our 3rd pet, Sadie, in December of 2013.  She's a Golden Retriever, and is just over 1 year old.  We adopted her from RAGOM (Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota), who rescued her entire "puppy family" from a commercial breeder.  They made the trek to Minnesota, fostered by a wonderful woman who cared for the momma and all the pups.  We went over to meet the puppies, and Sadie (then JJ) went and sat in my husband's lap.  We took her home a week later, realizing we couldn't live without a little "Gold" in our lives. :)  Since then, I've been laughing and smiling while watching this crazy ball of fur grow up.  She is very spunky!  I decided to start blogging about her when I realized that these stories that I tell just couldn't be made up.  I told my co-workers at lunch all the crazy things she's been up to, and watching them laugh made me think "hmmm, I wonder if people would enjoy reading this as a blog?" Hence, here we are, blogging about the crazy and wonderful life of our wee little family!
