We went to Utah today and brought home a new 'baby.' He's a real sweetie! He is an 8-week old English Golden retriever. We don't have a name for him yet, though we're working on it. He and Gussie are very curious about each other, and I don't think it will take them long to become playmates and buddies.
Losing Wooster was very hard for us, and we had to think hard about getting another dog this soon. But we discovered that we are just people who feel like a house is not a home without a dog in it. (A cat is just an added bonus.) So welcome back, dog hair! All of my black clothes and my wood floors have missed you!
