Foxy, our rescued street dog
this week has been all about Lily’s birthday and coincidences
so…. since there have been plenty of posts about Lily’s birthday (and the last one to come once we have her birthday party today), let’s talk about coincidences shall we?
when we found this yellow house, we had sort of stopped looking
i found the listing on craigslist, we called the following day, looked at it the day after and the moment we stepped inside, we knew it was the house for us (even if it’s a rental)
this week, through facebook we found out that our landlord is this mama‘s cousin
and not just cousin but first cousin!!!
i mean, i have known Ulrike since the nineties and now we are living in her cousin’s house
aside from Lily wanting a pink birthday bed (which she got), she wanted a puppy
Will and i searched a bit but didn’t really found one and to tell you the truth, we kind of put all our focus on the bed and were thinking puppy for Christmas
yesterday, as i was about to get in the shower, there was knock on the door
it was my son’s neighbor all out of breath because he had just ran 3 blocks as fast as he could to let me know that his mom had found a stray puppy
ever since we moved in, my neighbor has had her eye for a stray for us (they are common in this hood)
so, i quickly grabbed Lily and we met my neighbor a few streets over where i found her and her other son sitting in the middle of the street feeding ham to a tiny little pup
he was scared with his tail between his legs and would not come near any of us
slowly with time (and ham) he started getting closer and eventually we lured him all the way home
long story short, his name is Foxy (because i think he looks like a little fox) and he is our pup
so, Lily got a puppy for her birthday after all
and…. speaking of birthdays…. Lily and my best friend from high school share the same birthday
how about that for coincidences?
happy weekend everyone
we have a birthday party to go to!!
