And what exactly am I thinking? I'm not sure.
Over a year ago there was a lot of change in this household. I gained a new family member with Walter, but lost a best friend shortly after that when Jackie lost her battle with cancer. Around December of this year I couldn't stand the quiet in the apartment. There was something missing. Jackie's loss had clearly left a crater around here, and there were starting to be signs it was time to bring another terrier into the fold.
I knew trying to fill those paws was going to be a challenge. The friend of a lifetime was gone.
I searched the state of Colorado first. None of the breeders really clicked with me.
I moved further afield. I chose breeders by where I wanted to go pick up a puppy. Boston ranked high on my list since I have great friends up there and spent a part of my life there. I found two amazing people up there with great dogs. One had bad timing for a litter. The other and I clicked.
And this is how the newest family member came to join the family.
She comes home in July and it is sure to be a journey. Terriers and puppy hood are not for wimps. If this girl is half as wonderful as her father and mother, I will have won the terrier lotto again.
