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!
