Bette is STAYING in the house!


Recommended Posts

It is with lots of joy that I am sharing that we signed the adoption paperwork yesterday for Fly Blaze Bet, aka Bette, aka the Divine Ms. M, also know as baby girl.  We have fostered her for a month, and she gave has given us no reason to second guess making her a forever part of our family.  



She is just barely 2 years old, but seems like she has the soul of an older dog.  She is calm, loving, affectionate, has not met a stranger (human or canine) that she does not love to greet, and so far, she has adapted well to being an only pet in a household with an unorthodox schedule.  She has shown flexibility with the random nature of our coming and going, and although we try to keep her on a feeding and walking schedule, we will occasionally have to shuffle that  . . . like today when it is pouring rain therefore precluding her morning walk before being crated . . . and so far, she has been able to handle those adjustments.

Here she is with our neighbors labradoodle puppy.  They love to play together in the yard, but he does not stand a chance at catching her.



And here she is with a friend blue brindle girl, who we will be dog sitting over the holidays.  We wanted to get them together prior to see how they would do, and it went off without a hitch, though we will keep them muzzled when playing in the yard.  Better safe than sorry.

And here is our "official" adoption pic that is posted to our groups FB page:


We feel very blessed, and like our family is complete.  It is has been a long, tough year.  But it is coming to a close in the best way possible.  She is our little Christmas angel and we look forward to many, many years ahead, filled with joy, fun, new adventures, quiet nights, and the special love that sharing ones life with a greyhound brings.

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

Yes, that look on her face in the family pic says it all -- "I've hit the jackpot."  :)

But why are there only two stockings hanging from the mantel?  I'm sure that violates her adoption contract.
