Yep, we did!
We were going to wait on getting another dog, we really were. We were all crushed by the loss of Maggie. We received a beautiful letter from the Humane Society the other day. They really are such great people. Rob was surfing around and came across Pebbles. She is smaller than I initially wanted in a dog, but Rob and I felt it was important for the boys to have another dog. Poor Joey keeps asking when Maggie is coming home. When we drove through Meadow Lake yesterday on our way to Saskatoon (which is where Pebbles was), Joey kept asking if we were going to get Maggie. It was really heartbreaking. This little dog has already won us over. She's 9 months old and has been with an amazing woman her entire life. Unfortunately this woman is going through a divorce and couldn't keep her. We met her this morning, and were there about 20 minutes or so. She wrote out a big list of everything she could think of that would make our transition with her easier, and even had a big bag of toys and blankets for her. She slept on my lap most of the way back today, and really is a sweet dog. And most importantly, the boys adore her. She has been raised with a 2 year old girl, so she's very gentle with the kids. When we left her previous owner was in tears, which of course put me in tears. We exchanged emails and promises of keeping in touch, which of course we will. And, I gave her this address so she can follow on the blog.
