We went to go meet Chex (then Marla) with Debbie and Sarah on March 25, a thursday evening when we are both off work. The plan was to just visit her, maybe come back in a week and get her. We fell in love. We couldnt leave her where she was at. So, Chex went home with us that day. About an hour later, we took her to Petsmart to get some things she would need for the night. Her collar was not a proper collar, so we got her a new one, and decided to re-name her right in the store. We came up with Chex, like the cereal, and also like Chex Mix, since she is a mix. Plus, Claire and I always make puppy chow together, which is like chocolate covered chex cereal with powdered sugar. I know you really aren't suppose to change a dog's name, but Chex did not in anyway respond to Marla, so we figured it would be okay.
