My New Puppy

Monday, February 17, 2014

I was blessed to have the most amazing dog ever in my life for many years. When she died, I really didn't think I would ever want to get another dog. My health was declining badly and I didn't have the energy or strength to be a great companion for a dog for one thing. Plus, there is that nagging doubt that you can love another dog as much when you've loved one that much.
Well, my daughter-in-law's dog Zoe had puppies by my daughter's dog Gadget. They lived with us from the time they were born. I kept telling myself not to get attached. I told myself I don't need another dog! We have a dog and 2 cats already.... We are getting ready to move and didn't need the hassle of another dog. I'm not up for housebreaking a puppy... etc etc. I told myself all this but... Haymitch didn't take no for an answer. He decided that he was my dog and I was his person.
So... meet Haymitch, also known as Squeeky Boy.

And here is Gadget, Haymitch's daddy and Haymitch in the background doing his best Gadget imitation.

    I felt that way when we lost Louie and then a month later we were lucky to find Ginger at the shelter. She has been a wonderful dog. Then on Labor day my son brought home Haley. She was wandering around the neighborhood. We decide to keep her and she is part of the family now. Still a puppy until July of this year. The vet figured she was two months old when we found her.

Your little guys are so cute!

    His daddy, Gadget, is a Pekihuahua and his mama,Zoe, is a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua. Other than his color, he looks exactly like his daddy. He has be wrapped around his little paw already. LOL

    OH MY WORD !!! What a CUTIE TO THE MAX !!!

I also do,, as does our FAB ML, MaryAnnS,,, believe that our pets DO CHOOSE US !! They can sense which owner is especially for THEM !! When I went to the shelter, to get an ORANGE CAT !! I was looking ONLY AT ORANGE Ones,,,, I was going to go around for the 2nd time,,, to see which one I WANTED THE MOST !!! Well almost around the 2nd time,,, when suddenly a little tiny brown tiger,, stuck her paw Outside the cage,, and had her paw upside down,, and moving her paw back and forth !!! I UST KNEW IT !! This little one,, wanted ME !!! And than the shelter lady said "she's been here for a week, and she IGNORES everyone ,, though many have shown an interest in her". SO I KNEW she was MINE !!

ENJOY Those PRECIOUS WOOFERS and of COURSE the MEOWERS also !! May ur life with that ADORABLE Puppy be a VERY LONG TIME filled with NOTHING but LAUGHER and SNUGGLY HUGS !
