So, we've survived winter together, made it through spring, and have nearly completed summer. Technically we adopted Barry at the end of fall but it was December and I consider December winter. Period.
I have enjoyed bringing Barry through all these new seasons. It's so much fun! There are quite a lot of things that we thought we'd do or wanted to do but didn't, or things we wound up doing without planning it. I have loved doing things with Barry. The first week to monthish with Barry was a toss up of how much I loved having a dog but I loved Barry right away, always.
On Sunday night we had our first Chicago Bears football kickoff game with Barry! Barry was with us for last year's playoffs but if anyone follows football closely you know the Bears didn't make it to last year's playoffs so we never had the opportunity to cheer for our team with Barry by our side. I know it sounds silly but I was so excited to have Barry there with us. Plus we finally had the perfect excuse to have Barry wear the Bears jersey my mom got for him. Barry will be wearing it weekly during football season.
Beyond that we have Halloween coming up. I want to get a costume for Barry. I don't know what he should be! I don't want it to be anything too ridiculous or heavy/restrictive for him but I want it to be fun! I'm not really huge on Halloween but now that we have Barry it might be something we can enjoy a little more. Though, I have a feeling Barry won't really get it.
|Nope, he doesn't get it. He's in it for the treats.|
|Not feeling so well. Please take care of me.|
