Losing a pet is really hard. They become such a big part of your family and for most of us we get a dog or cat before we have our children. It is kind of like, a test of your responsibility. Obviously kids take a lot more work but you know what I mean.
Earlier this year our beloved dog Thor passed away. He really was just a lovely gentle natured dog. Our girls grew up with him and he was nearly 15. Needless to say he left a big void in our lives.
We hadn't planned on jumping in to get another dog in a hurry but an opportunity came along to give a home to a rescue dog. She was rescued from the pound and staying with a foster carer, but she was also pregnant!
Can you guess where this story is going?
Many weeks later eight little puppies arrived! They were all still in foster care but have now all found loving homes. We have taken on the care of the rescue dog - her name is Pippa , and one of her adorable little puppies.
Sometimes things just work out, the timing might not always seems right, but in the end time doesn't wait for us.
Our new additions arrived last Thursday , just in time for school holidays - perfect!!
