Welcome Home, Pippin

I have so many thoughts... so many unpublished, unfinished "drafts" from the last couple of weeks... there has been much musing, spiritual and otherwise... there have been many tears...

But, I can't tarry, waiting for all of them to get processed and finished and posted. The kids are asking for a photo post to share our news... we have a new canine member of our family.


We took to heart the admonition of former President Ronald Reagan: "The best way to get over a dog's death is to get another soon."

So, here is introducing our new little friend, Pippin. He is a cocker spaniel rescue from the local pound, and he is so sweet and gentle and soft and dear. We are very much enjoying getting to know him, and very much enjoying having a dog in our home again. We still miss Little so very much, but we are happy to have another soft fuzzy friend to love on...

Aw what a sweet dog! I have never seen a dog with such a huge tounge:dog ratio. I hope he uses it for big, sloppy kisses!
