Dogged

What could be better than loving a dog? Loving two dogs!!!

Yep, one just isn't enough for me. Really... who would ever accuse me of not doing something to excess? So, today Nino's son, Smoke is coming to live with us. I'm so excited! I can't wait to watch the boys run crazy by the river... can't wait to see Nino's excitement.

A few weeks ago Ms. M, Nino's former human familiar, emailed me and said they also needed to find a new home for Smoke. She was planning to put an ad on craigslist. As I read her email I looked over at my sweet Beandawg, and said, "Nuh uh! No son of yours is going to go live with some stranger who might or might not give enough love." I immediately emailed back and told her I wanted him.

"Are you sure you want to do this?"
"It's a lot of work!"
"You don't know what you're in for..."

Oh, but I'm sure. And since when did I ever back down from any challenge? And since when was my heart not wide enough open to have more love to give? It's in reaching out that we receive what we need.
