VinnieAndRexsMom Posted July 30, 2015 Share Posted July 30, 2015 Jake has been lonely since Chase left, and I waited and waited for someone to come because they always do. Well, for almost two years no one came. None of my friends called saying, "I have a dog that I think is supposed to be with you." With the exception of Jake-- who I found in a post on GT -- and Vinnie who was our first and strictly by the book, this is how it always works at our house. We've never had a girlie since our first dog 35 years ago. All boys. All breeds. Always. So, one day on my Facebook this goofy picture popped up on my homepage. She made be belly laugh. I saw her and fell in love ... and I watched her for six weeks. I wasn't sure if DH was ready. He did the hospice for Chase and it was really rough. When he saw her he laughed, and then nothing... for a few weeks. Then he started to ask about her. Finally, last Saturday we drove Jake to see her at a M&G. They didn't know we were coming. When Jake and I walked out, May was following us. We were approved with lightening speed, and she came home last Sunday. May is soft like a bunny, stripy, gentle, and whines a tiny bit like Vinnie. She is passionate about her toys and plays endlessly with them like Rex. She is silly like Red. She checks in on us and has a crate like Chase. She is from Texas and smaller like Jake. She raced in Mobile, just turned two in May, and has floppy ears: right, left, forward, both front and back at the same time, and folded on top of her head. Though I see a little bit of all our greys in her, she is still unique. May is cuddly, nosey, and zigs when I zag. We haven't brought anyone new home for 6 1/2 years, so we are trying to remember everything all at once, but most of our routine has been the same over the years. I am glad the Universe thought it was time Meet CTW Miss May (Diane will post pics for me when she can ) Quote Tonya, mom to May, and my angels Vinnie, Rex, Red, Chase, and Jake.
