    I was very surprised when I came home from work to find a new member in our household. We had gone to look at her at a no kill humane shelter and I couldn't get her out of my mind.
    So we sat down and had to do some figuring about when we could get the fence fixed and a few other things done from when my brother-in-law's dogs were here and destroyed the place while they lived with us (another story).
    I just wasn't sure until I saw her there at the rescue I truly wanted another dog as mine had died 6 years earlier and I was heart broken over my baby poodle.
    So hopefully I did this right and she will show up .. Her name is Brie so loving; she almost leaped into my arms when I came in the door. with a lovely Red VDay ribbon around her. I think She will become my avatar as soon as I make sure I can upload pics and such !LOL

    She looks and sounds so sweet! How old do they think she is and what breed? I know what you mean about having another furry baby - it gets so lonesome, no matter how many other humans there are around.

    Please give her lots of love from my sister Dawn, our Dobie Emily and me!

    Rescue Dogs are very special. We had 3 Chihuahua's and a friend who lives 4 hours away found one on a busy highway who was so scared and very skinny took her in and nursed her back to health (4 vet visits) called us and asked us if we wanted anothe one. Well we now have 4 and love them so much.

    In February 2007 I found the most perfect dog ever. He came from a no kill facility in Minnesota and he is so sweet we call him our 75 pound marshmallow. He has only one bad habit - he sheds like a cheap rabbit jacket. And ok, he does makes this whiney nasal whistle sound whenever he thinks I should be in the room watching him sleep instead of doing housework, lol. If someone will tell me how to post a picture I will share.

    God bless you,,,she is so lucky to have found her forever home. I walk dogs at the Animal Shelter and it is so rewarding.

    Those loving animals make the most loving family members.

    Enjoy your new baby. :thumbup:

    She sure is lucky to have found a forever home. What a sweetheart - both you and your dog. We have always had rescue dogs whether from a shelter or just bad conditions. They are the best.
