      I Have A Secret To Tell

      And it's been so hard not telling it sooner. Was so afraid that something would happen that it would not work out.

      We have a new girl in the house, Katie! She's a Kentucky girl, 7 years old, and a jewel. She has a ton of background training, obedience and rally. She had one litter that was a C-section and the breeder did not want to put her through what might be a repeat and it took the breeder a long time to decide to let her go.

      We make the 400 mile trip to Louisville, KY, yesterday and picked her up. She was a gem in the hotel. Took a little bit to settle down in the bed, then she cuddled up beside me and we all slept well. Another 400 miles home today in the rain, UGH. Got her in the house and one of the first things she did was dive into the toy box. She's a true labby chowhound and I'm loving every minute of her.

      Loving on Papa as she takes over the bed:




      Watching football with Papa:




      AND, for the first time, I have puppy pictures: Deep Run Got It Goin On - Kleinen Hain German Shepherds

      We are head over heels in love. Wanted to take some pictures when we got home but it's raining a bunch. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

      Have had a really tough time after Archie passed. I cried when vacuuming and there was no fur. Katie is just what we need to not replace Archie, but help heal our hearts.

      Happy tears here! Welcome to Katie. Looks like she's already settled in- can't wait to hear more stories.

      PS just looked at her puppy photos. I'm officially in love.

      Congrats Fran!! She is absolutely gorgeous! Welcome to your new home Katie.
      You have to wonder if Archie and the others played a hand in this.
