Oh... this boy is smart. You can see it in his eyes, can't you?
Well, you'll remember Raji's passing in January. It was a very hard thing to lose him, and still is. But we are "dog people" and we knew eventually we would get another boy that Koko (our female Lab) would approve of.
After many trips to the shelter, and talks with Lab Rescues in our area and even a few home visits with potential dogs... we realized that Koko was going to be very particular. And, having kids and other animals at home made bringing a shelter boy home even more of a complex and risky thing. (In the past, I have experienced very hard "failed" experiences with adopting shelter dogs. You may remember this. )
Anyway- it was out of nowhere that we got wind of a litter of puppies just around the corner from us. First we heard there were none left, and it seemed so weird because I really had the feeling we were supposed to have one of those puppies. Of course then..a call came the next morning saying there was actually one that wasn't going to be taken as previously thought. Come quick, they said. We have a list of interested folks. And we did.
This is Boomer. He is a Red Queensland Healer - an Australian Herding Dog- and just about the smartest, most cuddly, mellow puppy I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Koko approves and even licked him once. And the girls? Well, they are taking over all the pottie walks out in the yard, the feeding and a lot of the cuddling. I'm sure Boomer will be quite a star around these parts and that you'll get to know him well. He is a doll!
And before I go today, off to water my garden and clean my studio, I had to share these awesome tanks. My goodness they are so soft and lightweight and flattering and stylish! Not too short. (But not too long either.) Racerback. I have two colors right now: the most amazing teal (my favorite color of all time.) And a gresyish-brownish sort of wonderful color (that I would have to say is my second fave color of all time!)
There are here in the shop.
I hope you have a GREAT weekend. I'll see you on the flip!
