Sad news

I’m really sorry to have sad news to share. This blog is about positive things. There’s enough sadness in the world without me adding to it.

So, this is not the post I wanted to write and it’s a hard one to put into words. But I didn’t want to pretend nothing had happened either.

Walter died this weekend.

We had actually just gone over to the breeder’s to see him the day before. It was particularly hard to meet him in person, see how cute, fluffy and wonderful he was and hear the news the day after. It was also very hard on the breeder and his family.

On a positive note, if there is one, we’re even more appreciative of our two fluff-balls of dogs. They, blissful in their ignorance, have no idea why they’re getting all these extra hugs and kisses…but they love them.

It’s certainly a lesson, for me, on appreciating life and everyone in it while I can. Life is a blessing. So, I’m really glad you are in my life, wonderful readers. And little Walter, if only for a short time.

Introducing: Walter

We’re getting a puppy.

Yes, I know we already have two dogs. Yes. I know they’re a lot of work. Yes, my family…ah…No, my family (aka: dog-free parents) doesn’t know…and it would be really good if no one tells them. Try to keep this hush-hush. 😀

That’s him in the pictures. He’s only a few weeks old, so he can’t come home right now. He’s coming at the end of April.

In order to get ready, we’ve already contemplated new fencing, food, toys, blankets, gadgets, and bowls. We also chose a name. Walter.

You might wonder how on earth this little guy came to have such a serious name…Well, I can’t take credit for that one. In a moment of weakness, I told my hubby he could pick the name.

Now we have Walter the puppy coming to live with us.

No matter what his name is, I’m sure he’ll be a lovely, quiet, well-behaved puppy.

I’m sure he won’t pee on the rug or get dirty.

I’m sure he’ll be respectful of guests.

I’m sure he’ll inspire a ton of new posts.

Just for fun, wanna guess what breed he is? I’ll give you a hint. He’s not an akita.
