Today was the day..........

Some of you, if not all, know that we lost two of our fur babies this past year......Spookie was with us for 12 years and Hunker for 13.....They were wonderful companions and we knew they would be hard to replace.  But lately the house was just feeling too empty .......and "someone" said that Cricket was becoming too much of a Diva as well.   So we have been looking......I would visit the pounds....there are three in our area.........we haunted Craig's List..........we watched the paper..........even Rodney put a note up on Face Book that his "Mom was looking for a pup".......

But yesterday the perfect ad appeared on Craig's List.......I texted the person and waited........and waited.....and then texted again this morning and YES!!! She replied........so off to Buckholts we went with Cricket in tow.........and this is what we came home with.......
Richard has named her Dakota (after his truck)......and we think she is gonna be the perfect fit.  She is only 2-3 pounds but ........
 
....she seems to have fit.

It is amazing that something that tiny can put a smile on the face.......
Now we  haven't forgotten the Queen of the House....
....and she had an oppinion ......






And we think it is gonna all work out fine in the end.....
