Standing Guard

20141226_145622 Beau-dog joined our family just under a year ago. New Years day, 2014 we drove the hour long drive to pick him up. His owner could no longer look after him, and so, he joined our family.

I've always had dogs in my life, but for a few years while I was having kids and living in the city, we didn't have any canine companions. After moving to our acreage, we decided it was time. We began looking for the perfect addition to our family. Little did we know it would come in the form of big St Bernard/Golden Retriever.

Now, it's hard to imagine life without him as I stare out my window at him guarding our house. It's been nearly a year, but it feels like he's been with us for so much longer.
