Here's our big surprise! Drumroll please! Meet Holli!
Holli is a 4 year old boxer lab mix that we adopted from Madison Mutts yesterday. It's the same place we got Ben from last year and I just CANNOT say enough good things about them. They don't have a shelter. They operate out of a series of foster homes and the dogs are loved and treated really well until they can find a forever home.
Holli has been through a lot lately. Her daddy loved her very much (he even sent along a video of her as a puppy...awwww!) but moved away and could not keep her. He gave her to Madison Mutts and then she was adopted out to a home with eight children who basically scared the crap out of her. Who could blame her! Eight kids! So she went back to Madison Mutts. Despite what must have a been a stressful few weeks for her, she is fitting in extremely well at Chez Bee. She pulled a bit of the diva routine with ol' Bouncin' Ben yesterday but that's to be expected. Ben is an aquired taste for some. But today they are getting on great! Here they are recharging and soaking up the sun together. Look at those chunky monkeys! That oughta be enough sled dog power!
But mostly she is veggin' on the sofa, restin' up and settlin' in. She doesn't like to have her picture taken and is really good at fending off the papparazzi. If you come to my house, I'll show you the album of the 75 photos I've got of her butt and the top of her head so far. The 'good ones', such as they are around here, are much like this "I van't to be alone..." shot below. Finally a dog to blame my shoddy camera work on! It's the subject, not the arteest, thank you very much!
Please join us in welcoming a new Furbaby Daughter to our family. Building commences on the ark once the snow goes off!
