And Now For Some Good News!

I have to apologise for the fact that this blog has felt more than a little glum lately. It's only natural, since the failed IVF has been pretty much the only thing on my mind... but there are still good things happening around us, too.

I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but we are counting down the days until we can bring home our dog! The cats aren't going to know what's hit them, that's for sure - but I'm hoping with lots of interaction & inside visits, they'll get along well {or at least tolerate each other} in the future. Oscar is a mellow cat, but Evie is ridiculously skittish.

I've always wanted a Husky, Jase wanted a Labrador. We both agreed on a 'big dog' since it's important to us to get out and go for walks. After lots of research, and after letting our turf settle in the backyard, we decided on a Golden Retriever. I had contacted a few breeders in the past, and had asked to be on Litter Watch 2012. Wouldn't you know it, but a litter was born in early April, just local to our home.

We visited them at 4 days old, then again last week and have been waiting since then to bring a little guy home.

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to bringing Sir Puppers home with us. It's a welcome distraction that's coming at the perfect time - I'm getting prepared for vaccinations, long nights crying, and puppy pre-school. I am ridiculously excited for puppy breath. I am so, so ready to be a mama - even to another fur-baby. My animals are so important to me... bringing home the dog will complete our little family, for now.

They are adorable!!! I think that bringing Buster home last year was the best thing we could have done. He has been a fantastic distraction!

Our puppy was the BEST thing to happen after my miscarriage. It gave me a really good outlet...I hope it is the same for you! So so CUTE!

Over the weekend there was an old couple with a half dozen puppies in a shopping center parking lot. I begged J-Mo to stop and let me snuggle them, he said we were already late (in all fairness, we were, tremendously). I am only slightly mollified by these adorable bundles of fur. So cute!!

SO CUTE! Puppy breath is the best thing. And those sharp little baby dog teeth - so precious!

Hello from ICL: These puppies are ADORABLE! We got a dog last summer right before IUI and IVF (both failed) and she saved my life. Honestly, having a dog by your side during stressful situations will make them much, much easier to manage. And puppies are so cute. Post more pics.
