Where Have I Been?

Hello friends and folk!  I hope there are still some of you out there reading this.  I apologize for disappearing but he loss of Lola and my DH's declining health have just knocked the wind out of my sails.  Our house has been so empty without Lola here.  I haven't been doing much sewing or stitching but we did acquire a new family member.



Introducing Betty!  Betty is a 3-4 year old Boxer that we adopted from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.  She was found running the streets in Darlington, SC and spent almost a month in the pound there before she was rescued.  She has been living with a foster family in Georgia since late October.   She was heartworm positive so she had to have those treated before she could be adopted. We met her foster parents in Charlotte last Sunday to bring her to her forever home with us.


 Needless to say we have had quite a busy week getting to know each other.  She is remarkably calm for a Boxer but she does have her moments of craziness.  She love to counter surf, zoom up and down the hallway, and toss her toys right past your head.  :o)

We are in love!
So if you don't hear from me for a while I am probably out walking Betty or taking a nap.  :o)

I've been thinking of you, my friend. I'm so happy to hear that you and Betty have found each other--she will bring a lot of love and excitement into your home that's for sure :) I know she will never take Lola's place, but she will surely help mend that hole in your heart.

What a lucky pup Betty is to land in a home where she will be forever loved (and maybe spoiled just a wee bit?) :)
I'm so sorry for your loss - no pup can take another one's place, but I hope Betty will bring her own set of smiles to your life.

Jeanne said...

Congratulations on your new family member! Our little adopted dog we got from the rescue 8 yrs ago has been such a joy in our lives. It is awfully hard to get over losing a beloved pet I know. Betty will help heal the hole in your hearts.
