I Have A Secret

Back in October, my sweet old girl Echo passed away. She was 15 years old and I am still heartbroken over the loss of her. I've been really missing not just my dear old friend, but just having a dog in the house. It feels so empty not having the clickety clack of paws in the kitchen, no one to greet me at the door when I come home, well, you know how it is. So I've been spending a lot of time down at our local shelter, just hanging out with the dogs, petting the cats and bunnies and the guinea pigs they have there. I was talking to the lady who runs the place and mentioned that I was ready to adopt and is there a wait list for if any puppies come in. Well, it turns out that a little dog that she is boarding at her house just gave birth to a litter on Christmas day, so she is going to send me pictures and I can choose one! It's a secret because I want to surprise my family and they won't be ready till February anyway. But I just wanted to tell someone

I'm excited too. Still waiting for pics, but I'll share as soon as I get them The mother is a pug mix, father is unknown. I think this is meant to be because my husband has always wanted a pug. It's hard not saying anything!

That's great. You can visit and help influence the wee things too, with some early training. Boy, if you continue to visit it will be even harder to keep quiet.

I'm still keeping the secret- except I told my husband because it felt wrong to keep it secret from him. I'm still waiting on pictures but later in the week I might ask if I can come and see the puppies and take a picture myself
