I was looking at pictures on my cell phone while riding in the car this afternoon. I loved finding the very first picture of Lilly I took on my cell phone:
Such a beautiful, tiny little thing! I don't think I'll ever be able to get rid of my cell phone. I miss you angel girl! I know you look so beautiful in heaven!
For a variety of reasons, we decided to get another dog. We already have one, Lucia, who is a Labrador-terrier mix. She is a big, sweet rather frumpy looking dog. Hunter wanted a German Shepherd, and Tabby wanted a Collie. Amazingly, we found an ad on CraigsList for a free dog named Dixie that was a German Shepherd - Collie mix!
We brought her home this afternoon. Lucia was thrilled. At first. Dixie seems interested but I think it might be a few days before she adjusts. Dixie is on the left, Lucia on the right:
Quick - do you remember what day God created dogs?
"Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to it's kind'; and it was so. . . .Then God saw everything He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day." - Genesis 1:24, 31
One of the first words Hunter learned to read was "God." He was delighted "dog" is God backwards.
