The litter I have been waiting for is here. Two girls, SIX boys ! And since I want a boy puppy, it looks like one will be joining our family around the end of January. Its been a rough year, losing two dogs has been really hard, and I wasn't sure I even wanted a new puppy, the heartache when I think of Tess and Rusty is still so very real. But I think a new baby will help us heal, and help Raider and Libby too. They have been grieving the loss of their sister and brother. And a puppy I think will help keep them young too. Still tossing around names, and soon I will have to go out and shop for this little one. The middle of winter here is not the most ideal time to be housebreaking a puppy, but we will get thru it. I am getting excited now about it, and can't wait to meet the new pup.
