But, let’s rewind a little.
On Wednesday night, Dude, (our 8-month-German-Shepherd-puppy) was involved in a hit-and-run.
He got loose from his leash and ran into the middle of the street after a stray dog.
After being repelled by a car going about 20mph, he got up and bolted after it, which — the car, quickly sped off.
After I received the news, Cole and I rushed Dude to the emergency pet hospital where we were later assured that he was stable and just a bit shaken from that evening’s trauma.
The next day, after a visit to another veterinarian office and a set of x-rays, we were thankful and relieved to have Dude back home with only a limp, splint and pain killers as battle wounds.
The idea of a new puppy had been on our noggins for a while, now.
After coming to the conclusion that we were not cat people — on top of me being allergic to them, we willingly gave Pandoro, (our kitten) away to a good home, not too long ago.
This decision greatly helped use feel that much more secure and ready to bring a new puppy home.
So, here she is:
Her name is Skye!
Skye is our new black and white 9-week-old Siberian Husky puppy. And due to her stellar and striking wide-set blue eyes, she rightfully earned her name.
This little husky was the first pup we played with at the adoption center, and out of all the other puppies we played with — Labradors, Boxers, Chow-Chows and many others, she ended up being the one we couldn’t resist coming back to.
The moment we brought her home, our German immediately ignored everything (and everyone) else and took a sniffing and a licking to the new puppy — whom, in turn, returned the favor!
After learning where she needs to eat and where to play and use the bathroom, she’s made herself at home.
As a matter of a fact, she’s laying down, relaxed, right now to me, drifting off to sleep as I type this post 🙂
Adopting a puppy, or any other pet for that matter, has a way of warming you up; right where you need it.
Skye and Dude are both wonderful reminders of trusting companionship.
And like Cole, I am so thankful to have the honor of caring for them both.
And well… that’s all for now.
I hope that you stay tuned to the blog as we all grow, together.
I can tell it’s going to be a very exciting and enlightening journey!
Happy Sunday, folks!
