Many of you know that we have been looking for a dog after losing Buckley last summer. We had some emotional visits to the SPCA only to be told that we could not adopt a large breed with a small child. Basically we were found unfit to adopt. Perplexed but more so pissed, I vocalized my utter frustration on Facebook on a Wednesday night, and that's when the the world started to spin again just a bit faster.
My dear sister-in-law and friend Missy told me about a possible rescue situation from a family in Narberth, PA. The next day I spoke to one of the owners for an hour, which led to 2 more days of talking with both owners at length. By Sunday I was heading to Pennsylvania to pick-up Buddy.
Alex was so proud. Her smile curled up around here cheeks and then her body shuddered. It's as if her joy was busting through the seams of her body. I haven't seen a smile curl like that since watching the ending of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas."
Buddy is handsome, shapely, calm, and well-trained. He is a fan of sticks, digging, catching balls, and jumping great heights for a frisbee.
|Cindy, can you throw the stick again? Ok, fine take another picture.|
He is a lab who will crush you with
He now coined "the black jelly bean." So snuggly. So loving. So gentle. So many memories to come.
Welcome home boy. XO
