Hi there...It's been a while or Love, Loss, and New Beginnings

First off, I would like to say how sorry I am that it has been so long since I last posted.
To leave with such a sad post is not very thoughtful.

I was truly surprised at how sad I was/am at Charlie's passing, I don't know why, he was a part of my life for over 13 years.

When someone in the house (of 7) calls someone the wrong name the other person would answer back "Yes Charlie". It was our thing, he was part of the family, the first time I said it after he passed, I went to my room and cried.

Another interesting aspect I hadn't thought of was how lonely Dickens our cocker spaniel would be while we are away at school/work...

Definitely a doggie shaped whole in our home.

Seeing how sad Dickens and I were, Big D decided to take matters into his own hands and visit Second Chance.
Being a very thorough organization, they sent him home to get Dickens before letting him choose a new friend and surprise me.

We brought Dickens back, let them meet, and we brought home "Lady" a 5 month old Boxer mix, complete with the pouty lip but without the clipped ears and docked tail.

She has been the perfect addition.
She and Dickens play, play, play all day.
She is great with the kids
And her wiggly tail makes me very happy.

  1. It is difficult to lose a pet so I so understand your sadness at Charlie's loss. I'm glad you took the time to grieve ... and found a new dog who needs a good home to give your love to!
