I appreciate so many of you sending nice thoughts my way after the recent and unexpected loss of my dog Sherlock. I now have some good news. I am the proud mama of a female 10 week old Chihuahua. And she was free. It's a long story, but it has to do with a pregnant, stray Chihuahua left in the middle of nowhere, and a couple with a big heart. I was going to head to the local shelter to look first, but it was meant to be how the chain of events occurred resulting in me getting Annabelle. Yes, I named her Annabelle. When I went to pick her up I thought I was getting a male puppy. But I was surprised to see a female. I've only ever had one female dog in my life, so I'll have fun getting to know her as she gets to know me.
I still cry over Sherlock. One dog cannot take the place of another dog. But Annabelle is comfort. And in time the pain will continue to decrease.
Thanks again for those of you who have been so caring since Sherlock passed away.
