Kid's Love Dogs (I do too!)
We decided to go with a rescued puppy. That way we get a snuggly puppy and do a good deed at the same time. When I saw this picture, I knew she was the one. Who can resist that puppy face!!!!!
She was rescued off the side of the road with her litter mates at about 5 weeks. It was February and freezing outside and someone happened to find them. Thank heaven for Project Pet. They named all the puppies after Tom Cruise characters. Since she was a girl, they called her Suri and it seems to have stuck.
We have no idea what kind of mix she is. I don't care. She is AMAZING! She fits right into our family. I've missed the smell of puppy breath... The softness of little feet that haven't trod a thousand paths... The wet little nose...
Wendy got some nice washcloths and some soap from a great website Wolfe Farms Herbal Soaps. Wendy says that the puppies and Kitties at Project Pet love the gifts.
The kids are crazy about the puppy. They have to hug and kiss her goodnight every night. We've had a lot of fun taking her for walks and introducing her to people. She is so sweet and an excellent foot warmer. In fact, she is sitting on my feet right now. So kid's love dogs. I love Adger, my first "baby". But I think that this puppy was really for me. Don't tell the kids. It will be our little secret!
P.S. All of her siblings were adopted! Hurray!!!
