Meet the newest member of our family .... Honey. She is a hoot! She is part Britany spaniel and beagle and is so lovable. Look closely ... she has a pink camouflaged collar. Her leash I walk her with is purple ... wonder why? Amber's favorite color!
Here's the story. We have two furbabies living in the house ... two cats that live the "good life"! They never go outside they are strictly indoor babies. I will share their stories in another post. Our dog, Noodle passed away 3 years ago of old age. She lived a good life and was such a good dog. I thought then we would eventually get another dog ... we had a fenced in area with a cute dog house even with a front porch! Life happens and the pen was left unused along with the dog house, although a mother cat had her kittens in there one time.
I always would see animals on TV needing a home and thought we should call about one but never did. One day a couple of weeks ago my husband came home from hunting and was looking at the Sunday paper on a Tuesday night and he said I found you a dog. The animal shelter had her for adoption with the sweetest picture in the paper. I was having a bad day missing Amber and was laying moping on the bed. I didn't even want to look at the picture much less think about a dog at the time. I just wanted Amber back ... which I know is selfish of me ... who would want to come back from Heaven?
Well I took one look at Honey and I asked if he would call about her the next morning.
We went the next afternoon to see Honey and apply for adoption. There was an instant bond with her. She was adorable! I never thought she would come home with us that day. I told the lady at the shelter my story and she could tell she would be going to a wonderful home. She told me I could name her something else but I liked the name Honey. Amber collected Boyd's bears with honey bees on them along with sunflowers. So I thought what an appropriate name! Honey jumped in the car with me and laid in my lap like a baby with those pitiful eyes! We took her by the vet's office and she weighed 26 pounds and she is about a year and a half old.
My husband told me he knew Amber sent me Honey to love. Something to make me want to get out of the house and go for a walk to get some fresh air.
Well this little thing has kept me on my toes!
She escaped twice the first two days from her pen but it is now secure where she can't dig under the fence. She now knows she has a home and is where she belongs. She loves to sit on top of her house and watch everything! She sits up on the top angle of her house straddling the center! It is the funniest thing. My hubby took a picture of her the other day with his phone. I just can't download it on my computer. I will eventually get a picture of her sitting on it! She climbs on top of the porch and then on the roof of the house :) She seems very content now after a couple of weeks.
I do feel like Amber did send me Honey to make me laugh. The furbabies here in the house require constant attention, however, I did need something to make me want to at least go for a walk in the yard in the colder months. We took Noodle everyday for a walk around our pasture. Now there is Honey and she is just adorable. I know Amber is laughing at her too ... sitting on top of her house!
Thanks for visiting and God Bless!
