We miss our sweet Daisy girl so much. We knew we'd get another dog eventually, thinking sometime in the fall would be good. But the local animal shelter was over capacity and having an emergency adoption event. We've been looking at their Facebook page these past couple of weeks and had our eyes on Autumn, who is part chow and part Golden Retriever. "Good with kids, playful but calm, sits peacefully while the other dogs bark." We couldn't imagine she'd last long enough for us to make up our minds to take the plunge. So we took it.
The kids and I went to the adoption event today to check her out and knew we should bring her home as soon as we saw her in real life. She's met her whole family and lots of friends already, and hasn't barked yet. What a sweetie! We decided to keep her shelter name; Autumn fits her perfectly.
Duncan has said over and over today, "I am so happy. I'm just so happy."
