My New Puppy

Monday, February 17, 2014

I was blessed to have the most amazing dog ever in my life for many years. When she died, I really didn't think I would ever want to get another dog. My health was declining badly and I didn't have the energy or strength to be a great companion for a dog for one thing. Plus, there is that nagging doubt that you can love another dog as much when you've loved one that much.
Well, my daughter-in-law's dog Zoe had puppies by my daughter's dog Gadget. They lived with us from the time they were born. I kept telling myself not to get attached. I told myself I don't need another dog! We have a dog and 2 cats already.... We are getting ready to move and didn't need the hassle of another dog. I'm not up for housebreaking a puppy... etc etc. I told myself all this but... Haymitch didn't take no for an answer. He decided that he was my dog and I was his person.
So... meet Haymitch, also known as Squeeky Boy.

And here is Gadget, Haymitch's daddy and Haymitch in the background doing his best Gadget imitation.
