at our house, we call all black dogs with white feet (and white bellies... does Archi have a white belly?) "Turbo-Dogs" after our black-and-white-tuxedo-cat-who-thinks-he's-a-dog whose name is Turbo. (he's also my username namesake. )
hoping with you, that Lexy will be home really soon...
Thank you so much!
So today was interesting. There is a black baby dog curled up on a pillow by the stove in the living room. He's two months old and his name is Archibald. (Archi) And he is the newest, loveliest member of our family.
It wasn and wasn't an easy decision to adopt Archi. In some ways I felt guilty... as if it meant or seemed that I was giving up on Lexy or "over her" in some way. Neither of those things is true of course, but I worry that's what it might look like.
The truth is that I was at the shelter looking for Lexy, and I fell in love with Annie the beagle. For a variety of reasons I couldn't get over to try and visit Annie until today. Well, when I walked in today, Annie was being adopted by the sweetest older couple and they were so happy to be taking her home. So we just looked at the doggies again, and there was little sweet Archi. He's been there since he was newborn, and I had to bring him HOME.
The shelter is still on high alert for Lexy, and there are new posters of her up everywhere. Lexy is still my dog, and she always has a home with me. I still cry for her, and I still pray for her...worry for her. I just couldn't turn down helping this dog when I knew I could do it, ya know?
Thank you for all your Lexy dog love and support. She's the greatest dog, and if she ever gets back to us (I hope!) I know she and Archi are going to have much fun together.
