I didn't blog about our loss in August. As you can imagine, our life was busy finishing up house projects and preparing for our son to be born. Just days before I delivered Alexander, our dog of 13 years, Tron, passed away. It was a very hard week and watching our family companion leave us, and never meet Alexander, was heart wrenching.
We had Tron since he was a pup. A pup who was found in a box in a parking lot, answering to the name Chubs. LOL! He was a mix of all sorts; a mutt if you will. Tron was a good dog who loved to play football, loved our kids and kept a watchful eye over our home. He was smart and made friends with the crabbiest of cats. He is greatly missed.
In an attempt to simplify our lives and to pay respect to our loving Tron, Hubby and I decided that we would be a dog-less family. The girls did well with the passing of their doggy, but they still had so many questions. One being, "Can we have another puppy?"
We've been a little lost without our Tron and Hubby and I still talk of him everyday and how much we miss him. Last week, we unknowingly made the decision that maybe, just maybe, we'd like to have another pup.
It took only a week or so to find our new fur-baby. A small, indoor pup who could grow up with our children. Meet Lucy.
Lucy is a Miniature Dachshund, weighing less than Alexander. LOL! She's just celebrated her 6 month birthday. Lucy is very sweet, a cuddlebug in the fullest, gentle with all of the kids, well-behaved and an all around great dog for our family.
While we still miss Tron very much, I am glad we have found another fur-baby to grow with our children.
