|Funny dog sits like this on benches!|
It's been about six months since we lost our beautiful 3 year old black lab, Riley Mei. That was a hard loss to process for our whole family. Especially the kids.
We still had Prince, though, and he's the best dog ever. A golden lab/retriever mix, he was precious from the moment we brought him home from the shelter about four years ago. We couldn't believe his previous owners didn't want him.
But Prince began to get lonely. Not for people. . .he was with us 24/7. No, he seemed to miss Riley and their romps through our bit of forest. And their endless games of tug of war. And just having another dog pal to tell his doggie secrets to.
So our grief over losing Riley Mei began to give way to our love for Prince.
We began to look for a suitable friend for him, though we all thought we couldn't really open our hearts to a new addition. Until we saw a picture of a husky mix on a rescue site. I think he was the 177th dog we viewed. We didn't need to view any more.
So, after a lengthy adoption process, we brought our new baby home.
What do you think? Worth adopting?
Miche Kai Benjango, Star of the East, Duke of Dutch Flat, welcome to the family!!
(PS: Miche (pronounced Mee-sha) Kai's name is the product of a mistaken thought that naming him should be a democratic process. No one agreed, so his name became a little longer than is typical!)
