I have this blog as a place to share my creative self -- be it card making, music playing, scrapbooking, altered art, home decor, or whatever direction my art takes me. My dogs are always a part of my home life, so they have to be a part of my blog, too.
Sending Smiles -- Outlawz July Progressive Freebie
It's Saturday, and after the tragic loss of our beloved Gracie a couple weeks ago, we're heading a couple hours away to look for a new puppy. We're looking at a male this time. We can't even think about having a female spayed.
We loved that girl! She was the dog I was going to go into retirement with. Instead, she died 4 days after her one year birthday, and 3 weeks after I retired from a mistake the vet made during surgery.
These are 2 of the males from the new litter. We'll have 5 to choose from. We'll check them out today, at 5 weeks, and bring one home at 7 weeks. No one can replace our Gracie, but the house is just too quiet, and there is room in our hearts for another dog.
