Apparently I took an impromptu break from blogging.
Things have been crazy! Work has been off the charts stressful. Hopefully its going to be settling down in the next few weeks.
On top of everything going on with work, derby and friends, we decided to take on a new addition to our farm.
My friend Jordan posted this picture on facebook.
Jordan’s husband, Kevin, found this little cutie wandering the streets of Phoenix. They received no response from their craigslist, pet finder, etc ads and resorted to reaching out to friends to see if anyone wanted to take in an adorable stray. With two dogs of their own and moving out of state, they had no room for her to stay permanently.
I saw the picture and immediately called and then texted Brian. He pretty much knew from the moment he saw my text of “Hey, did you see the picture of the puppy on J’s facebook page?” that we were getting a puppy.
I mean, look at that mug!
After a successful first date with Shea, we decided that the little boxer puppy, who we thought was 4-5 months old would be a perfect fit.
Seriously, look at this face.
The next afternoon we took our new puppy, now named Lulu, to the vet to get her checked out.
After another scan to rule out a microchip, the vet came in and told me this little girl looked like she has had a rough life up until now. She has a bunch of scars, including one big one on her foot, which looks like something was wrapped around it. For a puppy to have lived so hard for her short little life, this dog is a total sweetheart.
The vet also deduced she was probably more like 8 months old, and looks like she might not grow anymore. She said her growth had probably been stunted.
I’m so happy we took this little girl in. She’s such a happy go lucky boxer, who is such a little love bug.
Now, we just have to break the news to the cats that the energetic new animal isn’t leaving. I don’t think they are going to be too happy about this…..
