How we got our doggos…
Callie’s gotcha day is September 5th,2008 ( I think it was the 5th). Callie had followed my mom’s bosses home from their run and they kept her and put flyers up but nobody claimed her. She still had a collar mark around her neck when they found so it was clear that someone must have just let her out. After the week of not being claimed by anyone, my mom talked my dad into keeping her even though he wanted to go to a car show that weekend, instead we took Callie to the vet and she became a Greene. Callie became my best friend, she went everywhere with me, she was my shotgun rider. Well, in 2011 Phillip came into our lives and then nobody existed in our family when he was around…Still true to this day…
Phillip and I got married in December of 2013, When I moved to Camp Lejeune in May I talked to my parents into Callie coming for summer camp after memorial day weekend. That summer camp never ended. She became mine and Phillips. & she is still with us all the way in Japan.
Well Phillip had been home from Deployment #2 about a month and Phillip and I were having a lazy Saturday watching the new Netflix series “Fuller House” and when Cosmo became a dog daddy and we saw all the puppies, we wanted to go see cute puppies. It was March 12th, about 2 and 1/2 weeks before we got orders to Okinawa…So we decided to just go to the pet store to look at the puppies.
So we decided to just go to the pet store to look at the puppies. BAD IDEA… Not really we love Remington…Most days.
Well, we get to the pet store and we see a chocolate lab and this Aussie mix aka Remi. The lab was passed out asleep so we weren’t really interested because it was boring to watch. But Remington was alert and noticed us immediately, he followed Phillip back and forth and we got him out to play with him we knew he just had to become a Greene. We took him home where he then met his Sister, he growled at her haha. At first, Callie was SO annoyed by him she hated sharing things and she would tease him since he couldn’t get on the couch. They quickly warmed up to each other and have become best friends, they love each other and cuddle daily. I am so glad that we have them a part of our family.
That’s the basic story of how we got our furbabies.
