Meet the newest member of the Tyler Ford Family (not the Steve Ford Family, but the Tyler Ford Family)!
Her name is Angel and she is an 8 year old Basset Hound.
I am so glad that Tyler and Rae decided to adopt her, she totally loves Tyler!
They brought her over to our house to show her off last Monday (and to stay in our house during the storms cause their house is ...wellll... lets just say a ditch on the side of the road would be safer than their house during a tornado:) Ok Ok I dont know that for a fact but their house IS very old....anyhoo If you know me at all you know that I LOVE dogs and Angel is no exception. She came in and when I set down to greet her she promptly jumped up on the love seat and stood on my lap (she is too long to sit on my lap so standing is the next best thing right?) She has these wonderful droopy eyes that just beg for attention and love all the time. But if they dont work she is a pro letting you know exactly what she wants through whimpering and nudging.
Sorry the pictures are so blurry but they are the best that I have. As you can see Angel insisted on sitting by Tyler which was so cute cause there was not enough room for her and both of them as well but she would not settle for any other place. Tyler was petting her and talking and he started to use his hands to demonstrate something to dad (which meant that he was no longer petting Angel) WELL this would not do in Angels mind!! She started grumping and then she put her head under Tyler's arm and nudged his arm hard enough to force it on her head to pet it. We were dying laughing! It was so cute.
On another note, Angel was not a fan of our two rambunctious nuts. Any time Chloe or Ramsey came close to her she would grumble deep in her chest and her lip would quiver. Chloe thought she was trying to play with her and keep diving toward her only to pull up sharply and spin around, she is such a mess. Ramsey on the other hand had his hackles up and keep running to my lap like a chicken Mommy's boy.
Here is proof that this experience just wore him out. I was looking for him to see if he needed to go out and this is here I found him...silly dog he had totally destroyed my bed in the attempt to hide under the covers and then decided that it was too hot under there.
|Aint he soooo cute!|
Okay Okay I know that I sound like a crazy lady with all this dog talk so I will try to save face and tell you about some of the other things going on around here. (Notice that I did not apologise for my dog loving talk, cause this is my blog and if I wanna talk crazy talk I can but you dont have to read it. That is your God given right as a blog reader :)
In other news the LCA Graduation was Tuesday. Trenton and Jonathan did great jobs on their speeches and Bro Wilkins preached a message that was unforgettable.

Darian was missing from this picture...
not sure where he was, maybe outside star gazing :)
In all randomness below is a picture that I took on my way home from work the other day. I had a really long, rough day and was feeling a little down. When I turned onto one of the winding roads that lead to my house this is the sight that I found.

Next week we are headed to the Promise Land aka Texas to visit family so hopefully I will have lots of fun stuff to share :)
