Default It is Finally Time

For those who know me, you also know how devastated John and I were at the loss of my precious Shetland Sheepdog 3 years and 3 months ago. My husband and I questioned if we could ever be owned by another pet. We finally decided that we could never replace our beloved "Skeeter". We now acknowledge that we are depriving ourselves of this special bonding. Even though Skeeter left us so suddenly and without warning, seven years with Skeeter would always be better than seven years without him. Next week we will again have that special Sheltie smile and those adorable almond eyes in our home. I am so excited to tell my friends that we are so fortunate and blessed to have another sheltie becoming a member of our family!!! We also believe that Skeeter played an important role in our newest addition!!!

OH MY GOSH!!!!! I am so happy for you. I'm glad you finally decided to open your hearts to another pup. Skeeter is watching down on you all with pride and will help guide that new puppy.

You better post or send me lots and lots of pictures.

Big hugs my friend to you and John. I'd do a happy dance but I have the freaking flu and not enough energy to.
