Kind of a Turd

When I wrote about Beamer’s adoption, I said that Beamer has met his match in stubbornness and mischief in Ryan. When Ryan read the post, he emailed me “Come on, I’m not that bad!” But I was spot on when I said that. Beamer and Ryan are like two peas in pod.

When I realized that Beamer connected with Ryan better than he connects with me, I thought this brotherly bond would make for a great post. But looking through my photos and reflecting back on our everyday, I realize that there are far too many moments to share in one post. We have already had so many funny and sometimes frustrating moments, that I can’t share just one.

One of my favorite moments happened in the first week after we brought Beamer home. Going off of what he had seen in a video, Ryan went with me to Petsmart to adopt our new dog. Two days later, we moved to Kansas City, and three days later I asked Ryan what he thought of Beamer…

Ryan’s answer: “He is kind of a turd and that’s why I like him.” Beamer won Ryan over so quickly because Ryan, admittedly, can be kind of a turd. Both boys are stubborn, bullish, and mischievous at times. But they are also quietly kindhearted. Which makes for a heartwarming dynamic that has me constantly reaching for my camera.

Here are a few pics of some of their (not-so?) finer moments…

“I’m not poking you”

Sometimes I have to remind Ryan that Beamer is blind not deaf…

Sneaking up on him…

Monkey see, monkey do

  1. Turk and Daniel have always gotten along better than Turk gets along with me (Turk will always find Daniel to snuggle with him – even if I’m sitting right there too). It bothered me at first, but now I kind of adore their little bromance. Looks like Beamer and Ryan have quite the bromance themselves!
