So I mentioned in my last post (I have been bad at posting! I am sorry) that we lost our beloved cat Willow last week. She was my companion and my buddy. It is horrible to loose pets at any time but last week was just not the time that it needed to happen. I hated that she was even an outside cat but there are tons in the neighborhood and we rescued her off a ranch. Prior to, she climbed the walls of the house. I lost my buddy and companion but I know we have to move on.
I work from home and so it really helps me to have a pet, especially one that I am so attached to. We have been talking about getting a new dog since we had to put down our elderly shih tzu named Pancake but were going to wait until our yard was completed. Because of the circumstances we ended up with a new family member a little sooner.
Piper is a black labradoodle. She has brought some much needed joy and excitement to our house.
She loves running in the grass and yesterday we took her for her first visit to a state park. She had a ball. She fell into the water, got herself really dirty and then was exhausted on the way home. I put her at my feet but she still found enough energy to climb up onto my lap. Today she went to the vet and did great.
Hopefully we will have joy for a little while from here on out. We still recognize though that the Lord is good no matter what happens 🙂
