This is one of the ways that Bravery pays off:


My (rather big) Be Brave Action of the day: Ask our landlords if we can adopt Eve.

Their answer: a resounding YES!!

I'm gonna be a new dog-mama!!! :)

I'll be sending out baby announcements soon. She won't be "delivered" by her Fairy Dogmother until later in the week. I can hardly wait! This really feels too good to be true. I look forward to writing more about her very, very soon. I am simply beaming. :)

YAY JESSIE!!!!

She's beautiful!

I had to look at her twice - with her white toes, tummy & tail tip, she looks just like the dog I had growing up -

She's going to be a JOY in your life and you in hers - LOVE LOVE LOVE to you and all of your babies!!!

Huge congratulations - I just found your blog and I really love it.
My daughter has the same name as your new girl - it's a very special name for special girls!
I wish every happiness together.

I've been trying to get up the courage to ask my landlords for cat #3 (she's a gorgeous all-black stray that gave birth to a litter that's been adopted out but she's still waiting for a family--we especially wanted her because we knew that all-black cats were so much less desirable to adoptee famillies), and you've motivated me to actually do it!

Karen said...

Yes, well, speaking of doggy-mama? Dinah, who was supposed to be spayed when the vet LOST HER? She's lactating.

Yay for you, sweet one! Eve is precious...I am thrilled for you. Your posts always make my heart sing, and it is singing especially loudly and joyfully tonight!

Lots of love to you AND Eve, and I promise I really will write a real letter soon...just so much to write.
Kisses,
TaraDawn
