Meet the Newest Addition to My Family!
Three years ago my beautiful black lab died of cancer at the age of twelve. I wrote a post about it a year ago at this time, hoping that our house would soon be big enough again for another. It took a year to finally get my husband on board and find the perfect dog, but last week we did.
He's a nine-week-old black lab puppy that we adopted this weekend. He's so smart, so beautiful, and so tiny! And such a joy! His favorite thing to do is crawl into whatever available lap he can find and curl up. I don't remember when I've smiled this much.
So now instead of being buried in the computer, I'm taking long walks, wrangling Christmas lights from tiny jaws, throwing tennis balls, and rubbing tummies. So if I get a little more absent than normal here, you'll know where I am. Sitting on the floor with a soft warm puppy.
