New Dog!

First off, apologies. I’ve been AWOL from the blog. My father died the last day I blogged – December 11 – and I was obviously otherwise occupied. I will blog about that eventually, but right now, it’s just a bit too fresh. I will say, though, that I appreciate every act of kindness my family and I have received. Every card, tweet, post, card and visit have meant the world to us. In such a time of sadness, it is heartening to find out how blessed we really are.

Now, meet Marley, my new dog!

Marly, extreme makeover edition. I hope to settle her in between the before and after, but the groomer said that she needed a fresh start!

In the last week, Sister stayed over at Mom’s, and she had her dog, Cebu, with her. With just me and the cats – who I do dearly love – I realized how much I missed having a dog.  This morning, the City’s Animal Shelter posted a picture of Marley, and the rest is history.

She is four years old and came to the shelter when her family couldn’t afford to keep her. She appears to be a mix – I’m thinking maybe some sort of terrier, chow and maybe greyhound. (You know I’ll be getting one of those DNA kits soon!)

Cebu has given Marley a warm welcome, and Bagheera is having a ball with her! Marley seems to be quite amused with Baghi, and Baghi is having a ball breaking in the “new kid.”
