Eight years ago today I walked in the house with this little thing under my coat. The Mister had been out having lunch with his friends and I decided to take an unplanned ride up past Baltimore to take a look at a puppy I had seen online.
I had tried for months to rescue a dog after Dear Old Doggie departed this life in September. It's harder than you think. I don't have a fenced yard and I have other pets. It makes it complicated. When I did locate a pup someone was willing to let me rescue it sadly passed away from a heart ailment right after I had been approved.
I had everything ready here for that ill fated pup and I was heart broken so late one night I went online puppy shopping and found one. I've rescued many, many cats so the fates should be able to forgive this one indulgent purchase from a backyard breeder.
It was money well spent. We couldn't have asked for a better dog.
Seven. We can't believe she turned seven in October. She's officially a senior now and that fills us with dread. Embark says her age now in human years is 51. Yikes. We know all too well how hard those goodbyes are but we can't let it spoil the fun of knowing something so adorably perfect in every way. It's been a wonderful seven years. Hopefully we will get at least seven more.
Pup was an ADORABLE puppy and has grown into quite an elegant lady. Wishing you many, MANY more happy years together.ReplyDelete
Happy Gotcha Day, Pup!
I loved seeing the photos of Pup. She is darling and of course it's right that you have her. She's obviously meant for you and The Mister. She has lots and lots of years ahead of her. Our Chloe is a big dog and she's 15!ReplyDelete
Little dogs tend to live good, long lives if they are loved and taken care of (which you obviously do with pup!) I'm sure you have many many more years with her!ReplyDelete
Pup is adorable and deserves a good home just like every rescue dog does. If Pup makes your heart happy she is the one for you. My boys are from a breeder, a very nice woman I still send photos to. They deserve homes just like a shelter dog does. Happy Gotha Day Pup!ReplyDelete
Give that sweet pea a big kiss from me! I'm so glad to know her story.ReplyDelete
Pup is SO adorable! I miss having a dog. One day soon, I hope I'll be celebrating a Gotcha Day too. Give Pup a cookie and a belly rub for me.ReplyDelete
Happy Gotcha Day!
She could not be more adorable!ReplyDelete
My MIL desperately wants a rescue cocker, but they are in very short supply. It is so sad that her beloved Jack passed at the beginning of the pandemic. She could use some doggy love.
She has been a great addition to your family! Happy Gotcha day to you Pup!ReplyDelete
Hope you get a lot more years!ReplyDelete
