I got her!

I got her!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, yeah, I cried, I admit it. Yep, had to get all dramatic - and I had to hand the phone over to my husband because I was blubbering like an idiot. But you have no idea - or maybe you do - of how badly I wanted her. I felt a connection to her instantly and though I had never had a female dog (my preference has always been male because they're more affectionate) I just wanted a dog that was different from Sampson.

I waited a week, all the phonecalls on our references were made - and when there was no call as of this afternoon, I was mentally getting ready to give up on her because I couldn't bear the thought of not having my heart's desire (once again). I struggled to not be so attached (and lost). Just a little something to look forward to. Yeah, yeah, I know I could be bitching about her pissing up my bed in a month, but I'm so happy right now. I feel like can breathe again!

oh my gosh, I am so excited for you and she's adorable!! If I were there I would bring her a treat throw you a puppy shower. I just want to squeeze her. You are going to have many happy years with her and she has no idea right now how loved and lucky she is.

Oh Deathstar -- she's SOO beautiful...I have tears in my eyes and my heart is filled -- -hooray! I'm so glad you've found one another -- of course, I have a soft spot for girl dogs...:)

Look at you -- walked right through that fear! I have a huge smile on my face right now -- the kind that makes your cheeks ache.


It's spring!

Love,

Pam
