Rich spent the day with a team in the squatter camp yesterday while I took the kids to their school sport's day festival. This information is important to the story as you must realize Rich was by himself and the kids were with me.
Around 4:00 p.m I got a text from Rich stating, “he had a surprise for me”. I thought cool maybe he is bringing home Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Is it weird that my first thought automatically was about baked goods?
Rich arrived home, asked me to come outside and then led me to the back of his truck. Quickly realizing I would not be eating cinnamon rolls for dessert I questioned, “Richard Thomas what did you do?” He got a silly grin on his face as he opened the back of the truck revealing these……
Struck by my dropped jaw and bewildered stare, he stammered…"They were abandoned in the squatter camp, I couldn’t just leave them there…aren’t they cute", as he handed me one of the pups.
I must admit I was quickly overcome by their cuteness and when the kids saw them well let’s just say there was no turning back. We now have an even ratio of kids to pets…3 kids/3 dogs.
Common sense was definitely clouded by cuteness on this one!
