For many of you who follow this blog regularly know, I lost my beloved female dog "Rosie" several months ago. For anyone new to this blog you can find her story here .
I must admit even though we still have our male Scottie " Riley", after the death of his mate he became very sick and we were afraid he would just simply grieve himself to death. Riley has gradually improved although I think none of us will ever be the same. But life moves on.
For Valentines Day... O Wise One has bought us a new female Scottie. I would like everyone to meet "Gypsy". She is 10 weeks old and was bought from a local kennel that was going out of business. We know that Gypsy will never replace Rosie but maybe will help to fill a little of the void that Rosie has left behind here in Hickery Holler. Gypsy has big shoes to fill but I think maybe she is up to the challenge. She is already quite the sassy one.
As for me that snow has melted just in time for potty training and taking a new pup out often. I forgot about the constant piddles of a puppy. We have also decided that we will be fencing in a small back yard for the two dogs so we can avoid the issue of one of them getting on the road. Even though there is practically no traffic on this gravel road it only takes one vehicle as we have painfully learned. People tend to really speed when they are on this road because they know that there are no police and very few people live on it. So for those of us who do live out here it becomes dangerous.
We are off to enjoy our warmer weather and hope everyone has a great weekend.
