I've been lurking here for about a year, and we finally got ourselves into a housing situation where we could have a dog! It's pretty perfect, actually. My in-laws have been thinking about moving in the near-ish future, but they're not ready quite yet. They found a piece of property they really liked, and it has an old house already on it. They will tear down the existing house when they've sold their current house and are ready to build a new one.
For the meantime, though, we get to live in the old house! It's great because the yard is nice and big, and it doesn't matter if the puppy ruins the carpet or chews the door frames. Obviously, we're training him not to do these things because someday it will matter when we have a nice house, but it's nice to be not so stressed about it all the time.
Anyway, here's the part you all want: pictures!
