My poor blog has been a little neglected of late. The loss of Meesha has left me a little adrift over the last few months. I've lost furry friends before and it's hurt, however, I really was not prepared for the pain and devastation I've felt since she passed. She and I had a very special connection.
With the death of our puppy, Shamus, not long after, I really didn't want another furry friend in my life. However, Sparky, our surviving canine baby was feeling rather lonely.
It was heartbreaking to come home and find him sitting there crying.
So, without further ado, let me introduce the latest addition to our family, Misty.
She's a labrador/blue heeler mix and was around 4 months old when we got her. She's almost 6 months old now. The lady we got her from, said that she had rescued her from a couple that were trying to sell her outside one of our local Walmarts. She had seen them standing outside the store, waving Misty around in the air and when she came out about an hour later, they were still there. Misty at this stage was crying piteously, so she bought her off them for $35.
She assured me that she had taken her to the vets and got her shots, however, I'm still a bit paranoid due to the experience with Shamus, so I'm redoing her shots.
So far she is really healthy and full of life.
She has dug a small hole in the bathroom floor, chewed up part of the kitchen floor, destroyed the electrical cord to my Xmas tree lights (fortunately not on at the time) and separated the plug to my sewing machine from it's cord.
Toilet training is going well though...
Wishing you all the very best for the New Year :-)
A young friend of mine, Taylor, has just started her own blog. She's 9 years old. Her first Camera Critters post is here, so pop over and say hello. :-)
