Our new family member
Allow me to introduce you to a very special young lady. Her name, we think, is Florence, and we will be calling her Flossie for short. (It is no surprise that we were studying a certain female Crimean war hero last week, is it?)
Flossie is 12 weeks old, and she is a tiny toy poodle. We love her to death already, although we are quickly realising quite how unpuppy-proof our home is.
Flossie fills the very big hole in our family that was left upon the death of our beloved Audrey back in October 2010. No dog will ever take Audrey's place - each dog is an individual, and Aud was my very special companion, but already Flossie has taken hold of our hearts, and I can tell she is going to fit into our family perfectly.
I can't wait to share some fun photos with you, but in the mean time here are a couple of pics taken when the light was fading this evening upon our return home. Can you see how delighted the human young lady is with her new companion?
Are you pet people? Do you love doggies, or perhaps pussy cats? Have you a guinea pig or a chicken coop in the backyard? To me they maketh the home.
I am so delighted that Flossie has joined us.
