Last month we said goodbye to our dear 14 year old Lab, Bailey. I had many people advise me to go ahead and get another dog, but I said, "no". We planned on waiting until this summer to welcome a new pet.
I didn't want my kids to think that one life is replaceable with another. I wanted us to go through the grief process for Bailey......and we have.
This past week something happened, unexpectedly. God literally dropped these two right into our lap:
Who could say no to those two faces??? I couldn't.
They are 5 month old Lab sisters who are house trained and have passed Puppy Kindergarten. They came to us from a friend who could not keep them. It was a blessing for us to take them and a blessing for her to know they were going to someone who would take such good care of them.
It's been a LONG four weeks at our house. We've certainly missed having furry friends around and we look forward to bonding with our newest family members.
We are smitten:

How fortunate for us, we have an in house Dog Whisperer:
