Lucky for us...

So here's the story,

One day my niece Alissa came running in all excited.  She was smiling ear to ear.
She said, "Guess What? My Mom said we can get a dog when she dies!"

Excuse me. What?

Apparently the girls were bugging and bugging my sister for a dog and she finally said, " Girls, over my dead  body you will get a dog."  Alissa found the positive in that, I guess.

Needless to say, my sister and husband finally gave in an brought home a dog, Lucky. 
So named because the girls were very Lucky to get a dog! 
And... my sister is still with us :)
