In late December 2018, the Grant-Lewises purchased their first home. It was everything they wanted: ample space inside and out to entertain, raise a family, and start their homestead. Yet something was missing.

The first few months were spent moving in and preparing the land for spring, after all the main purpose for the garden was Foodio. The neighborhood was quiet and the area rural. The owners were excited about this, but still the home was not quite complete.

By February, FoodiO’s founder determined she needed company during the day. Sure woodland and garden creatures were entertaining, but they didn’t quite bring the joy of a pet. A family dog had always been a goal for the Grant-Lewis family, and now felt like the time. Thankfully for the Grant-Lewises, the dog of former student recently had puppies!

The couple browsed the alum’s puppy photos and setup a time to meet two potential family pups. When they met Bear, it was love at first sight. And the rest is written in The Dogs Of Our Lives.
