Hi everyone,
As some of you know, we had a beautiful dog, Humphrey, for 16 years and he was the love of our lives. When he went to his "next" journey two years ago, I said I would never, never have another dog - EVER! Well, while at our spring show at Marburger, we met the most beautiful dog, Cash, and it was the first time I felt that deep longing in my heart for a dog again. John must have felt the same way because when we got home he searched and searched for our perfect "family member" until he found this adorable little puppy we named "Happy". He will come to live with us on Friday, and we are so thrilled - almost like adopting a child! I can't wait to watch cartoons with him in the bed!! I hope he will love us as much as I know we will love him. Dogs are the best!! I'll post more photos when he arrives here at his new home.
Love,
Pearl.
" I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive."
-- Gilda Radner

PS--"Thank you" my sweet John for little Happy.... I LOVE you!!!!

What a gorgeous little creature, "Happy" is lucky as are you and John for finding each other. Dogs bring such unconditional love into ones life and allows us to try and give that same love to others. Good Luck!! Patty D

Humphrey's smiling for you, I just know it!!

There truly is nothing like a dog's love. My old Zeke is the center of my heart and can't imagine not sharing this beautiful world with him.

I am so happy for you and John. Can't wait to see more of Happy. Friday will be a sweet day for you all!

What a sweet baby dog! Congrats!

Marlene Block said...

Its a compliment to Humphrey that you want to repeat the experience! There is nothing like the unconditional love and the greeting you get every time you come home, even after an hour, is the best. Can't think of a luckier dog going to two really nice people!!!!
Best Regards, Marlene Block

I just recently lost my Cosmo. I have two sweet dogs to sooth my ache but Cosmo was my heart.

I am so glad you are opening your heart and home to new little sweet soul.

All in its time.

I love the "discovery" phase of a new family
member. All the cute little quirks and personality
you will be discovering. Oh what fun!

Warmy,
Sandra

I can just see little Happy dances all around your feet. He will adore you!

Mary said...

He looks like an Australian Shepherd...I have 4 and used to breed them, but my Momma dog is old now and she is retired to the lady of lesure.....Enjoy your "Happy" boy, he is totally beautiful...I LOVE babies. These dogs are so awesome, get to know him and his ways and he will be a member of your family. I have one "spanky" that lives inside and he is my BBF!!!

What does dog spelled backwards spell? They are god incarnate, unconditional and loving. Love and hugs from a fan.

A new pup can never replace an old dog but they sure know how to heal a broken heart. Congrats! Adorable at its best! Hugs!

Congratulations. I can't imagine life without a bubbie in it, though I highly recommend two...it eases the grief a little when one has to go to doggie heaven.

Not having a child and having Maltipoo Sadie has allowed us to experience love and emotions that must be close to those of parent and child. Have fun bringing your 'baby' home and enjoy this magical family time.

Lycka till med din valp.

It's so hard to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but they bring so much joy, it's wonderful to see you are ready to have that again in your life! What an adorable little furball....there's nothing cuter than a puppy. Congratulations!

I love little (oe not so little) Happy. I also am love mom to a tri colored Aussie she is called Desie and is 9 years old now. If I had my way I would have another one right now but DH (dear husband) would not hear of it as he does all the outside pick up etc.
