The other day, Cody left to go back to work in the late afternoon and when he went to open the door there was a little dog begging to come in. After calling some numbers he got connected to the owners of the dog, who happened to live a few houses down the road.
A little conversation with Addy as she was allowed to skip a nap this particular day.
Addy: "I want a dog, mommy."
Mommy: "As soon as your daddy is done with the Army we can have a dog."
Cody leaves for a couple hours and returns home.
Addy: "Yay!!!! Daddy is done with the Army - I can get a puppy!"
