We got the dog when we did because we thought the move would be coming soon, more than likely July or Jan 2012. so we got Murdoch in March. We thought a dog would be a good playmate for Harrison during a move. I also wanted to house train a puppy when I had all hard floors for easier clean up.
As you can see they are best buddies and Harrison LOVES his dog, or his "son" as he calls him :) They lay and watch TV together, eat snacks, go to bed, and yes sometimes get a bit rough. But you will notice Harrison is laughing the whole time.
