Things have been so busy with the end of the school year that it has been a few weeks since I last blogged. Classes ended on June 5th and then I had three days of finals. I helped grade a bunch of finals on Tuesday but now, it's just a bunch of sitting around until June 24th. In that time frame, I am going to be productive in looking for a job.
The best news is I am getting a new puppy!!! In March, I had to put my beloved Shadow, my black Cocker Spaniel, to sleep. She got sick really quickly so we put her down so she was no longer in misery or suffering. I am so heartbroken still (3 months later) but I want to get another dog.
We were searching for weeks and weeks. My mom and I kept looking in the newspaper and I went to a few shelters. We wanted to rescue a dog as opposed to buying one but all the dogs (we specifically want a cocker spaniel) in the shelters were all either biters or couldn't be around kids. That was not going to fly.
My mom and I found a few through puppyfind.com. And I absolutely fell in love with one. This little lady will be joining our family on June 26th! She is being flown from Missouri and I pick her up in a crate at the airport. I am SO excited! I have no idea what to name her. Current contenders are Bailey, Bella, Lily, Sophie.
