That is the question that Roger asked me this morning. We have a new little girl staying with us.
This is Miss Mia, she is three years old and a real sweethart. She came from a home where she was love and spoiled just as doxies are suppose to be. Unfortunately a baby came into the house and Mia had trouble sharing the attention. This happens so many times to this breed. We have been lucky through the years. When we had our first Doxie he adjusted well to Rich's arrival. Then when Rob came along it was like, ok whatever. The rest of the Dahlenburg pack are a little unsure about this new arrival.
Lucy is the undisputed queen here at Ladybug Cottage. She is very short on patience with Mia. Of course Mia was the queen at her house, so the two queendom's are colliding. So far it is a bit of a power struggle but I think they will each figure out their place.
Sweeney would really, really like it if she would just stay off my lap. Which brings us back to Roger's question. Yes I have enough love to go around. I have enough love for ten dogs, but is that best for the dog. I think Miss Mia will be happier in a home where she will be the queen again. She is a wonderful little girl and I hope that DRNA will find that home for her.
Yes I am going to do my best to be a great foster mom, and when Lois finds just the right home for her I will kiss her good bye and be happy for her.
Yesterday I was looking at blogs and I came across one that spun me back 34 years. It seems this blogger has just found out that a baby is on the way and it is due on July Seventh. I thought back 34 years when I was feeling that same wondrous change in my body. My husband and I had wanted to add a little one to our family for awhile. I was beginning to despair of it ever happening, but a trip to the doctor proved me wrong. When I went I remember being afraid, afraid that I was, and afraid that I wasn't. The doctor did the exam and then asked if I would like to hear the heartbeat. The sound seemed to me like a small bird just flapping his wings. The tears of joy came to my eyes and I could not believe the miracle of it all.
I tried to figure out a fun way to tell Roger it was really going to happen. I decided to stop at Wal-Mart and buy a little outfit to hand to him when I walked in the door. I knew in my heart and without a doubt that this baby was a little b…
I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. I am trying to get better at this! Above is a picture I took of our home this afternoon. We have lived here for thirty one years. We moved here when our first son Rich was about eighteen months old. Five months later our second son Rob was born so this has been home for a really long time. We are approximately ten miles from the city limits of our small town. This was a huge adjustment for me as I have always lived in town. We have done a lot of work on the house through the years. When we moved in their were only three huge old tree in the yard. They were in really bad shape so we had to have them taken down. We started planting trees right away and we have mature oaks now. My husband isn't much of a Gardner so except for lawn care I am in charge of the flower beds. I have always had grand ideas about having a magazine perfect yard, but as I get older I know that that is an imposable thou…
