I Can Explain!

Yes, I have been MIA lately. But I have a really, really good excuse! Meet Brixie!!!



Isn't she just precious! So let me tell you the story. A few posts back we were really heartbroken that we couldn't take Bentley (another stray) in. The medical attention was just more than we could handle so we did one of the hardest things we have ever had to do and gave him to a foster home that would take care of him and all his needs. We were so saddened by this but just knew that the timing wasn't right. There has been alot of healing in the process.

Well Monday afternoon I got a text message from my sister saying that she had 2 puppies that needed a home. What?! Where did these puppies come from and why does my sister have them. So the investigation began and I called my sister and she proceeds to tell me all about it. Her roommate found the 2 pups on the side of the road and the mother was a couple miles up the way. So Dana grabbed the pups and tried to catch up. Sadly, the mom just disappeared. Dana took the pups to their house to find them a home. After my mom's suggestion to Michele, I got the text and after work I made my way to their house. At this point I am scared, nervous and excited all in one. Chris has really been talking about getting a big dog for awhile and this seemed like the perfect possibility. I mean what are the chances of coming by an adorable female lab PUPPY that needs a home and not have to spend a dime for adoption. Great! However, all I can think of is Bentley and all that happened and the disappointment of not being able to keep him. I don't think I would have been able to handle it. So I tried not to get my hopes up. This is all I could think of on the way over. I get there, walk through the door and BAM...instant love! I look down at these 2 adorable little girls and this huge smile crosses my face. In the back of my head I am screaming "don't get too attached, don't get too attached." After playing with them both I made the decision and went for the chubby reserved one. You should have seen Chris' face when I pulled up the driveway. He was waiting for us. We gave her a nice long flea bath and set her all up. The next morning I took her to the vet and all was well and she is one healthy little girl! So because of that I am now able to tell yall about her. I didn't want to jinx myself or get my hopes up.

Brixie loves to play, whine and cuddle! The first 2 nights were rough. She would cry non-stop unless you held her. Finally last night I took one of my shirt and wrapped the heart beat pillow I got her and put it in her crate. That did it! She slept so sweetly last night, as did Chris and I, lol! It's been quiet the adventure. I forgot what it was like to have a puppy!

So now you know why I have been MIA. And now that things have settled down a bit I can get back to my blogging! I hope everyone is having an awesome week!
