So I wanted to make a crazy post, about how we were adopting again, and how it was a 2 1/2 year old boy with special needs. But then I remembered that both of my grandmas sometimes read my blog, and I was afraid one of them might have a heart attack from the news.
So instead I will just introduce you to the newest member of the Urban family, who remains nameless at the moment. He did not come to us, we sought him out. The kids wanted a boy to even things out a bit, and to give Nellie a playmate. They also specifically did not want a puppy, "because everybody wants a puppy". They wanted a dog that would maybe have a hard time finding a home. Sound familiar?
He is covered in a rash and his skin is discolored from a severe flea infestation, but we hope to see him blossom into the beautiful yellow lab that he was created to be. He is skinny, and sweet, and so far is getting along fine with everyone. Even Zoya who was terrified of Nellie for the first six weeks she was here, warmed right up to him. He smells 100% better after a bath.
