Ok...not really! That would just be crazy to get a puppy and then move. Our neighbor got a puppy and our kids are loving the opportunity to play with it. When Alethia hears Scarlet playing in the yard she asks to go down and see her. Our neighbors have given her an open invitation to come down and play when they are out there. It is so fun to watch her chase Scarlet and then Scarlet chase her. She is really loving the experience, and I'm glad that she is getting it since it is unlikely that we will get a puppy anytime soon!
