The Evolution of the Animals

Once upon a time we had two dogs.  Our big boy, Kramer and his sister, Kate.  It was simple.

They coexisted like all siblings do.  Sometimes they ignored each other.  Sometimes they couldn't get enough of each other.  Just like any brother and sister.  They slept late.  They ate brunch together.  They slept some more.  Sometimes they played.

On Labor Day we said goodbye to our dear old man at the age of 15.

It broke our hearts into pieces.

E and I were parents to a wild and crazy boy long before I gave birth to a wild and crazy boy.  We loved him so very much and it hurt a lot to say goodbye.

Suddenly his sister had to go everywhere with us because she was heart broken, too.

She has been with us since she was a tiny pup and had never been without her brother.  We decided to start contacting rescues to look for another sibling for her.

We met Mia

The Athlete fell in love with Drake

We played with Nevaeh and talked about Hershee

Then sweet little Lucky that we know well needed a home.  She's living at our home for a while.

Almost immediately we got a wonderful opportunity to foster two pups and get to know them.
Kayla and Kona came to our house, too

In less than a week we went from one sad dog to FOUR dogs.
That might be too many.
Someone has not been thrilled with our choices.

We had to make a decision and we decided that we can keep one darling dog.

We chose Hope (aka Kayla)

She is getting a lot of attention and love

We will need to find a calm, quiet home for Lucky {everything our house is not!!!}, and Kona is living here until his rescue finds just the right home for him.

On our journey to find a new four legged friend, we've met a lot of really wonderful people who are committing lots of time and love to animals in need.  If you or someone you know is looking for a pet, please encourage them to contact a local rescue.  Their volunteers are such kind people and there are some very special pets that don't need anything besides the love of a family.  We submitted applications to three rescue groups in Southern California and there are rescues all over the US.

Adopt - Don't Shop!!!
