New Addition & Big News!
We have added onto our family! On April 14th we adopted a puppy!! Now that I no longer work outside of the house we decided it was a good time to get a dog - we already have three cats but there is just something about the companionship of a dog. I started a search on PetFinder.com and fell in love with this sweet puppy - so I though what the heck I'll fill out the adoption questionnaire and see what happens. Never in a million years did I expect to get a call the very next day - talk to the foster father of the puppy that night and then be heading to the airport to pick him up two days later - he was flown in from Texas! It was a whirlwind! Jack is just like me, a survivor - he battled back from parvo, a disease that kills 80-90% of dogs that contract it - but not my Jack! He had a very loving foster family that took great care of him and his sister, sadly his brother died from it. Here is the website of the Carney's who fostered Jack - they specialize in sick dogs at high risk and amputees - very special people. Check out their site - www.mypuppyfarm.com. I'm now new mom to a 16 week old black lab/catahoula leopard dog mix named Jack Houla! He is the best dog I have ever owned - smart as a whip and so laid back - he is my napping buddy and just what I needed! Here is a picture of Mr. Houla. He is curled up in the cat bed - that didn't go over very well so we have since bought him his very own plush doggie bed!
