My Very Special Christmas Gift

Today is the Day I get my special Christmas gift from Chris!!!! I am very excited.

As many of you may know, if you have been reading our posts for awhile, we lost one of our dogs… Kita…. a year ago September. It was very difficult for us and we have been a long time getting over her.

We have talked for the last little while about getting another dog/puppy as a playmate for Leroy, the dog we still have because we think he is very lonely without his playmate but for the longest time couldn’t get past feeling like we would be “replacing” Kita if we got another dog. I know to anyone who doesn’t own pets it might sound silly, but pets are part of your family and it takes time to get over losing one of your family members.

This week I saw a puppy that immediately tugged at my heartstrings and as soon as I saw her, not only did I want her to join our family, her name jumped into my head lol. She will be joining our crazy ass family on Tuesday!!!

Everyone meet little Miss Lucy! On Tuesday she will be joining the Logan Funny Farm and making it her new permanent residence! Not the best pictures but all I have for right now! They still show all of her puppy cuteness though lol!

Lucy is 3/4 Black Lab and 1/4 Maremma. As you can see she is mostly black but with white spots…. one of which is on her chest, which to me looks like little angel wings or a butterfly. Maybe that is what spoke to me lol. I don’t know what it was but she is to become a member of our family today!

If I disappear for a day or two, you know it’s just because I am either inundated trying to finish getting ready for Christmas or inundated with puppy kisses or training lol!

    • It does take a while to be ready again. I think it’s the feeling like you are replacing the one you lost when you are actually just opening up your heart again.
      Lucy, or “Wucy,” as our granddaughter has dubbed her is adorable and we are very happy we decided to add her to our family!
