    Puppy News

    As some of you know, we had to let our 16 year old Bichon Frise cross the Rainbow Bridge a few weeks ago. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make and it really messed me up a bit. On to better conversation....

    The kids & Rich really want another dog. Even our little mini-dachshund has been really sad & clingy - he's basically bugging for a friend. The kids & hubby have been bugging to go to adoption events to "just look" at dogs. I continually say I am not ready - emotionally or physically (I recently found out I have to have a knee replacement).

    Well, just like with our mini-doxie, a little doxie just fell into my lap. One of the rescue agencies I know who brings dogs up to NJ from Georgia called to say he has the sweetest little dachshund looking for a home. Louie (my doxie) and I are going to meet him tomorrow night and if all well between the two of them my aunt will keep the dog until we go to her house on Xmas day and I will completely shock my family by presenting the new family member!

    Wonderful.... and sounds like they will meet on neutral territory so they'll get along fine..... after all the obligatory butt sniffing and other things dogs do to get acquainted....! Nice Christmas surprise.

    Great news! I went through a similar circumstance last year and we adopted a rescue several days later. Our rescue was also from Georgia and saved by Home for Good Dog Rescue of New Jersey. A great organization that I support.

    Very exciting news, Good Luck to you and Louie I am sure you will all get along just fine. I keep telling DH since he is retired he should get a puppy to keep him company while I'm at work. DH never says no, but hasn't said yes yet either Good luck with your knee replacement Jacki - I heard they are a lot easier to deal with than the old days, PT will be a job but just think how great you will feel after your new knee, you will be chasing those puppies around and having fun!

    It'll be fun and interesting to see who is the most happiest; the kids, other dog or you.
