Meet Winston!

Meet Winston!

For those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you know our family has lost both of our sweet elderly dogs (Sammy and Jake) over the past 5 months. Sammy passed while we were on vacation at Walt Disney World and just last Saturday we had to put down our black Lab/Chow mix. Jake. Needless to say our house has never been this quiet even with a 4.5 year old boy running around.

Yesterday we decided to head up to the mountains of Cleveland, Georgia and check out the Garlic Festival, at Loganberry Heritage Farms. On the way back we spotted a sign that said "SANG Animal Rescue" in a place that also had gold mining and camp sites (only in the mountains, right?) We pulled in and look what we left with...

You know the saying...
every boy needs a dog and every dog needs a boy!

We ♥ chubby puppies
with chubby puppy butts

I'm thinking he's digging his new digs?
Hard to believe this little guy was found
under a vacant house with his litter mates
just this past Tuesday!

Says it all

Match made in doggy heaven
Thanks Sammy and Jake

T.V. watching buddy

You're forever in our hearts!
We miss you and thank you for helping us find Winston

final signature

So so sweet. LOVE the last picture. They are so much a part of our lives.

Our lab had to spend a couple of days away this month and the house was incredibly quiet. We missed her so much and my husband summed it up perfectly. He said you should always have a dog because not only are they an important part of the family, but they also give you total, unconditional love.

Enjoy your sweet new addition.

Thanks for all the well wishes! Thank goodness my husband has had puppies before and knows what he's doing. It's like having a newborn all over again:) only sharper teeth.
