This is one of my dogs, Elliot ![FB_IMG_1502828908384.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQKwd4VTQThCW4dDPwtMoxC6yZ66Bk9AZaYXQcG2BZiNQ/FB_IMG_1502828908384.jpg) Let me just start out by saying, when my husband first talked me into bringing him home, I did not want him (crazy, right??). My son was about a week old, and the dog that we had for five years just tragically passed away. I did not think I was ready! However, as the weeks went on, I was so happy we did! I would walk out of the room and come back to find this ![FB_IMG_1502828948298.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZPrfR4RhrBB44cMGurt1wQEYoKijbY5AVQS8t6iDD7vB/FB_IMG_1502828948298.jpg) ![FB_IMG_1502829287424.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmbpX2rk471PG6qheoRk6JQ13pteJZ1xdH6XPmkm7Ycugc/FB_IMG_1502829287424.jpg) Although I didn't think my heart could get any more full after having my son, it did! I was just looking at him today, and just made me remember how great he is! ![IMG_20170815_150456.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTG9b9WucuB7A9yQfpSK5UHaR2iTDyT33ayPoP4d5RRL7/IMG_20170815_150456.jpg) We have made happy memories with him, and hope we get many more!![FB_IMG_1502830137160.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmRmpZxyGi6ChkQgLwnEyGjM4BEgiG6TJkUFQctbRvyTq9/FB_IMG_1502830137160.jpg) ![IMG_20170802_135539.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdPAUKy9gcZUJ1AvYKYmEASD4hnYQh3oB9s9LBNh4bKMq/IMG_20170802_135539.jpg) ![IMG_20170304_121910.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTmadMmUAJqqWvKt2x5ArB1SXPCiXjeGdb5EV6YrqocxJ/IMG_20170304_121910.jpg) Elliot was the first dog (we now have three altogether) that truly became a member of our family! There are days that he may drive me crazy, but I could not imagine life without him. It's been an awesome five years (well, November will officially be five years)! ![IMG_20170226_174227.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSnSwZcDdC2bbYsBhovzSZGBcSMZKZwUe5m9DPMiptC2V/IMG_20170226_174227.jpg) We love you, Elliot! You're (one of) my boy(s)!
