What's the big news in the "forest-lane household"? (Why yes, I have now nicknamed my host family's house to make the referencing of my home during my internship simpler, and also more fun...yes, their house is on a lane, in a forest-ish area...bear with me.)
There is a new addition to the family! This is sweet Jordyn! She's a 9 week old golden retriever puppy, and a 10-year-old boy's new best friend. He has been asking for a dog for years now, and since he's turning 11 here pretty soon, summer is about to begin, and he doesn't have siblings as playmates at home as an only child, his parents decided it was finally time for a puppy buddy.
Jordyn arrived at Forest-Lane yesterday, and has been melting our hearts ever since. Even her cries at 2AM were excused by this college-student-intern-summer-guest because of her innocence and cuteness. We shall see what stories lie ahead with this one! Will she remain compliant and sweet, or will she be a troublemaker? Or perhaps both? She is a puppy after all.
