Show Us Your Life: Pets

Today is "Show Us Your Pets" over at Kelly's Korner. You all know how much we love Knox and how much of a part of our family he is.

It was around this time last year when we decided to get a dog. We visited a local breeder and walked out without a puppy because we didn't connect with any puppy there. I cried all night. So, that weekend, we drove three hours (south of Nashville) to a breeder and we found Knox. He was so cute and so sweet. He was actually the first dog we picked up. We had to leave him there because he wasn't old enough to come home, but two weeks later, we drove back up there and brought our little boy home.

Knox Barksdale Smithwick was born on November 1, 2008 (but I think he was born at 12:01am because he seems like a Halloween baby).

I knew when we got Knox he would be more like our child than our dog. Boy, was I ever right. Knox is definitely a HUGE part of our family. He brings so much love and joy. He is spoiled, but sweet at the same time. I would take him everywhere with me, if I could.

Mommy and Daddy love you so much, Knoxie!last week
