This is a test….who will read the blog first;)

This probably won’t come as a surprise to most people who know us. But, yes, we are even questioning why, oh why! 

It all started with Robert meeting the owner of this store. He needed volunteers and donations and had a surplus of items available in his store. Robert wanted to help in some way, because there is a real problem with these things in Beijing. In fact, just over the past 10 years Chinese people started to think of these things more like westerners do. Caring for them, selling them, but still many are thrown in the trash or abused.
As a family we really mulled over this decision. We already had our own in America. We had Wyatt and Seth make a chart of pros and cons. Wyatt, Seth, and Robert really really wanted this thing to be added to our home. I contributed most of the cons, but in the end my heart won.

So, have you guessed yet…

We started looking at many different sizes and shapes and kinds. We looked for about a month, still unsure about our decision. Wyatt liked them all. Seth liked smaller ones. Robert had a particular model in mind. Ada was excited and nervous all at the same time. I still wasn’t sure if it was what we needed in our home.

Give up…

Then one day we decided to visit the hypermart version that sells these things. Don’t do it to yourself is my only advice. I’m surprised we made it out with only one…


At this point we were still trying to decide on a name.  We think we have it narrowed down.

Believe it or not you have only heard about half his story.

And please don’t worry, if you are fostering our other pets, we still want them back;) Obviously, we were missing having something to care for, but also love and play with.
