It was Fate!

The last week is a bit of a blur. Last weekend started with so much let down from not getting that puppy and confusion as to how a person could actually do that to us! I still haven't figured out what she had to gain from that but I do know that we were obviously not meant to get that dog! (Duh! Right?)

It was a wonderfully cloudy, gloomy day that I would have otherwise been happy about but we were all just draggin' and it was far from the Valentine's day that we'd planned for the girls (and us too). We all finally got around and headed out to the Humane Society (with no luck there) and then on to Petsmart. The girls and I went in ahead of Jason and we quickly found our way to the back of the store which was full of dogs in need of homes! The first dog I saw was a puppy curled up in the lap of someone else....The girls and I looked over the other dogs but came back to this little puppy. There was a couple trying to get a feel for her and I just kept thinking "just walk away" " please don't take her". We hung around in the store until the couple decided that she wasn't the one for them and then we proceeded to spend about 3 hours getting acquainted and filling out the paperwork to bring her home! My heart jumped into my throat when they said we wouldn't be able to take her home for a few days...and then a woman I recognized came over to us and I was able to remind her that we'd adopted a cat (Kaladi) from them before and she approved us on the spot! And so we brought a 9 month old terrier/dachshund mix that went by the name "Fate" home...

As I type this, our new puppy (now known as Miley) is asleep on the chair and inching ever so close to falling off in her sleep! She has worked her way into our home and hearts and is quickly finding her place in our family. There's sure to be more posts and pictures about her in the future! It was definately *fate*!

I'm so happy for you all!! Bri's mutt is a terrier/long-haired dachshund of some sort (near as we can figure!) and he's so funny. Totally different coloring than your Miley but a total nutcase. I'm so glad you found your puppy! Yay!! Hug her for us!
