“My husband wanted a dog desperately and I said it isn’t the right time, and he said, It’s never going to be the right time.

I conceded.

We went on Pet Finder one Sunday morning as an exercise, because we were just beginning the search.  We have two shelter cats and getting them was like an act of congress, so we thought it was going to take a long time.”

“They already began to housebreak him, so the rest was easy.

We took him from the countryside to the city of Amsterdam and the was a bit of an adjustment.

He was only 12 weeks old.

He is pretty adaptable, though.

He loves NYC, particularly Central Park and the squirrels.

One of the advantages of living in NYC is the dog culture here, especially on the Upper West Side, where we live.”

“They served a specialty called Bitterballen, which is deep fried potato balls with gravy.

It’s not my favorite food, but we ate them out of courtesy, hoping it would help with the interview.

We passed the interview and got to see the litter.

There were only two puppies left, and luckily one of them was our favorite– Einstein.”

“There are so many little things that I enjoy about having Java.

I love teaching him new tricks and watching him learn.

In the morning, when the alarm goes off, he jumps on the bed in between my wife and me and let’s us scratch and pet him for a good 10-15 minutes.

I also love watching him play and interact with other dogs.”
