A month ago Taylor and I went out for a gallon of milk and came home with a deposit on a puppy. Sounds impulsive I know, but here’s the background story on how Sir Stoney ended up in our lives, because it was not part of the plan.
During the Local Thirty we joined a “herd share” and every week we’d drive out to the dairy farm to pick up our gallon of milk. Taylor and I were always happily greeted by farmer Jesse’s Great Pyrenees dog and when we told him how much we loved her he said “well she just had a litter of puppies a few weeks ago, you want to go see them?” I immediately shook my head yes, Taylor shook his head no, and the rest is history.
Henry is less than thrilled with Stoney but every day he’s warming up to him. I even caught the two of them on the same bed the other morning which is a big deal. Henry’s been a trooper and we’ve always thought of ourselves and a “one dog at a time” family but Stoney kind of fell into our laps at a time of the year that makes sense for us at the farm. We’re two weeks into this next phase of life and it’s been fun, challenging and full of love.
So there you have it. The Tumbleweed Farm family is growing and we’re pretty darn excited about it. And in case you’re wondering, we still drive out weekly for our gallon of milk, but now instead of one dog in the car with us there’s now two.
Thanks to everyone who has already left such sweet messages on Instagram about Stoney. He’s well loved already. xo
