Introducing Ivy!


Recommended Posts

A week ago this past Sunday, my husband was asked by a friend to help her with a GUR from Fredericksburg VA to Frederick MD. They left at quarter to 6 in the morning, and about 2 hours later my husband called to tell me he was in love with a little girl houndie that was being transported in his car and he wanted to adopt her. I said "Three dogs??? How could we handle three dogs?" He asked me to think about it but he really really wanted to adopt her. So last Sunday, we drove up to Pennsylvania to meet this little girl and we took our 2 girls with us to see if they approved of her. She stepped out of the car and came over to us. Breeze and Beka sniffed her and then stood next to her in approval. I was enchanted by her. She is a tiny girl, 55 pounds, with beautiful amber eyes and so sweet! Her racing name was Carolina Spoon and she is 2 years old. She came home with us and began settling in. It took her a day or so to master the hardwood floor in our hallway, and she is still a little hesitant to walk on the scary tile kitchen floor! The outside stairs into the house are not a problem, but the the Mount Everest of a staircase to the second floor is still a challenge for her. She is learning new things every day and watches her new sisters so she knows what is expected of her.

 

So without further adieu, here are the obligatory :digicam

What a beauty! She knew where she belonged, and used her feminine wiles to get there.

Congratulations Ivy.....may the rest of your life be as happy as you look right now!

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Congratulations. This little girl is a real sweetie. ❤

 

But be careful - a friend of mine adopted a real sweet tiny girl, which transformed into a little she-devil , keeping everyone on their toes. They love her incredibly but she knows exactly how to wrap everyone around her little paws.

Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.

 

Nadine with Paddy (Zippy Mullane), Saoirse (Lizzie Be Nice), Abu (Cillowen Abu) and bridge angels Colin (Dessies Hero) and Andy (Riot Officer).
