We have a new addition to our little family unit.

Meet London!

We picked up this precious girl yesterday morning from the Humane Society. She and her brother were left at a golf course last week and Spencer happened to be there testing that day. They were both so sweet and loving, it's hard to imagine how they might have gotten there. They were wearing collars, but no tags and were not microchipped. The Humane Society came and picked them up and attempted to find their owners. In the meantime, I called several veterinary clinics in the area where they were found to try and locate their owners. No luck.

After hours of discussion and prayers, Spencer and I decided to welcome one of the pair into our home. The boy was immediately spoken for and this precious girl was still available. She is leash trained, potty trained, knows some commands, and is 67 pounds of cuddles! She totally melted our hearts and we knew she was meant to be with us!

She is still learning her surroundings and routine, but has fallen into place beautifully. AND she leaves the cat alone! Chloe was our #1 concern... Do we get a dog now? Do we wait? Will Chloe be more accepting of a grown dog or a puppy? After lots of research, we found that likely Chloe will only have more difficulty adapting the older she gets. But still... we were skeptical. It turns out, London could care less that Chloe is in the house. She's all about the people! Since London was so uninterested in her, it was actually better for Chloe. London didn't scare her and she didn't try and play with her. We've been living peacefully ever since.

Our sweet girls LOVES affection. She will follow you room to room just to be close to you. She seems to have some issues with getting out of the car, though. Every time we have taken her out, she will gladly hop in the car and be a good passenger but when it's time to get her out, Spencer has to lift her out. We think this might have something to do with her getting left by her previous owners. She was also brought to the shelter with a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) so she is still on antibiotics for that.

Otherwise, she is an angel and a dear addition. We love having her and she has completely enriched our lives already from the little amount of time we have spent with her!

Or as they were known at the shelter... Hansel and Gretel :)

Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful Adrienne!! I can't believe people who think it is ok to treat animals that way...Dazzle is like our little human baby and I just don't understand how anyone could be so cruel to an animal :/ You guys are both great people and tell her that Dazz says hello :) She's perfect!

Thanks, Sas! It's really us who have gotten the biggest gift of all. She is a HUGE sweetheart. It's amazing to see how attached she has become to us in just a few days. It breaks my heart in half to see her try so hard with us, wishing and hoping that we will love her enough to come back. I wish she and Dazzle could play together!!
