We have a new being in our lives. She arrived on the weekend – a little sooner perhaps than we had planned, after losing darling Milly last week.
But my cousin just happened to have a sweet little pup left in their litter, who sounded like she might fit the hole in Dash’s life.
So we popped out to check her out – and let me tell you, if you think you can visit a litter of puppies without losing your heart… you are deluded.
Violet lost hers several times. She’s quite dangerous to take anywhere near baby ANYthings. They get loved to pieces.
Loved to sleep…
Oh DEAR. Puppy paws.
Sorry. That was a bit cruel wasn’t it? (Admit it, there’s a puppy sized hole in your life right now, isn’t there?)
So we picked up Diamond (as she had already been christened) and took her home.
She immediately won much kudos for NOT throwing up (or worse) in the car on the 70km trip home.
And despite being severely outsized by her new canine playmate (anyone else notice how SIMILAR their markings are though – strange coincidence!)…
Our Dash’s little Diamond is definitely helping heal some hearts round here.
Hope your ‘downside’s’ and your ‘flipsides’ are evening each other out in your life too.
PS Thanks for sweet comments on last post about Bill. I shall pass on your messages to his family.
