Oh the Joys of Puppies!
We had the most wonderful trip this week. We traveled to the Huntsville area to take a peek at some adorable puppies.
For those who don't know, my partner Patti is an Iraq War vet and uses a service animal when in public situations. Well, our cardigan corgi mix Tank is getting a bit older and his wonky little legs won't go the distance anymore. So...we have been keeping in touch with a great breeder whose female has a litter of six-week old pups. And, thanks to Tank's leg issues, we are in need of another cardi to train for her service animal.
Oh boy! What an awesome bunch of puppies! Cute as can be. Fun and playful. Each has his/her own little personality. So many to choose from. It was almost overwhelming. Patti was in her element as she sprawled out on the floor surrounded by puppies.
After spending a couple of hours with the breeder, she suggested a darling little girl named Harmony. After watching Patti and Harmony, I agree! The two of them just took to each other. Now Patti is so excited she about can't stand herself. She made a little name tag today. She was also bound and determined to get a leash and collar. But we have a new leash/collar set to be put up next month and it will have some neat new stuff on it. Hopefully, I've talked her into waiting to get her leash and collar!
Next thing you know, I'll be up to my eyeballs in puppy beds, puppy food, puppy toys...ad infinitum! I love it! I love it mostly because Patti is so happy and excited. So, bask in the cuteness that is Harmony!
