Shhh… Don’t tell our kids, but we just adopted a dog! Our new puppy comes home Saturday morning and we can’t wait. She’s a Bluetick Coonhound and she’s absolutely adorable.
We’re not sure how we’re going to surprise the kids yet. But we know they’re going to love her. The shelter named the puppy and her sisters after The Judds: Naomi, Wynonna, and Ashley. Although I love a theme, Ashley (who we adopted) isn’t the name we want to call her. Right now we’re tossing around the name “Happy.”
We found her on Petfinder.com, where thousands of dogs, cats, and many other types of animals are waiting to find a loving home. If you’re looking for a new pet, I encourage you to search Petfinder.com or visit an animal shelter in your area. More than likely you’ll find the type of breed you want. Many of the adoption organizations on Petfinder.com save the animals from overcrowded, high-kill shelters and then foster the animals out of their homes until they can find an adopter.
The dog we adopted was dumped off at a pound in Indiana by an irresponsible breeder, who didn’t want to mess with additional female pups. Luckily, Three Sisters Pet Rescue was able to obtain The Judds and bring them to Cincinnati where they can now live long and happy lives. Aww… Happy!
I’ll share new pics of our pup once we bring her home. Today I’ll be hitting the pet store to pick up all those dog-gone necessities!
