The flowers were received on Saturday from my vet and the staff at High Plains Vet Hospital. I thought it was very sweet of them to take the time.
Bright & early, I did a nice 13 mile run on Saturday morning. Nice, meaning I got through it without breaking down and crying even once. I thought I was going to on the way to the run, but once I got there and started running with the group - some of which already knew about Jersey - I felt better. I got wrapped up in my thoughts and just kept going on and on. She would have wanted it that way.
I spent the rest of the day up in Denver trying to locate a new puppy. Waiting in the long lines at PetCo for the puppy rescue, but no luck since I got there just as things were kicking off. People start lining up for it at 6 a.m. and the event doesn't start until 11! They had 4 Rottie mixes and one by one they left. I even told my story to 2 girls standing next to me and what do they go in and pick?! One of the Rotties! Bitches! There was another lady who had lost her German Shephard on Friday to cancer. It has not been a good weekend! She got a puppy though.
Off to MaxFund rescue to see their mixed breed puppy. A Rottie/Hound mix. It never slowed down and kept chewing on my fingers. She was cute and I took the papers to turn in to be approved to take her home. However, I needed something over the weekend and they said it would take 3-4 days to get through the approval process. Also I needed to bring my other dog up to their facility to see how Scout would react. Now don't get me wrong, I love my Scout "Foofer", but the thought of an hour + drive up and hour + drive back and I still wouldn't know if I had the puppy made me really think about the whole process.
Double D Puppies. They had 3 Rottie females available right now. So I went out today to see them and well...the picture says it all. The quietest one with the biggest feet came home with me. She's shy and doesn't have a name yet. I'm leaning towards Summer, but I'm open to suggestions - please! Scout has mixed opinions still since the puppy thinks her tail is pull toy. But I think they're going to get along fine.
All is good in the household for now. Vet check on Tuesday to see if there are any issues with the puppy. Classes start this week for the second summer session. Things are looking better for all of us. Thanks again to everyone who offered their thoughts & prayers about Jersey. I still miss her, everyday, but she's happy and healthy, and waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge.
