Yep, you heard me right! Rob and I are expecting! Like all expectant mommies I've been pacing the floors trying to get things ready for the big day. Food - check, Toys - check, Bedding - check! The little darling even has a name already - Lily ... and of course Rob has suggested giving her a middle name so she will be Lily Lee Seavey. The one thing that I really think is so cute about her is she already weighs about 60 pounds and has 4 legs! Meet my Lily!
When we first contacted Sunshine Golden Rescue we figured it would be months before we ever got a dog. How wrong we were. I almost gave up when I started filling out the application because there were soo many questions. But... after taking one look at Lily's sad eyes and pretty little face my heart melted and I knew she had to be our dog. My friend Margo adopted her dog Hunter through Sunshine and was sweet enough to give us a good reference - Thank you Margo! I sent the application in on a Wednesday, had our telephone interview on Thursday and our home visit on Saturday. The home visit really made me realize how terribly I had been missing having a furbaby around the house since Brat passed away last October. Candy, the lady who came for the home visit, brought her gorgeous Golden (Jordan) with her. Instant love. Rob seriously wanted to dognap Jordan as she was so beautiful. By Sunday evening we were approved and just this morning we got word that Lily is being transported up from Alabama this Saturday to Rhode Island. Rob and I will be waiting there at 3:30 with open hearts to welcome this pup into our lives. BTW - How long to you think it'll be before I start trying to dress her up in lace LOL! Hmmmmm a Lace collar? (Rob would shoot me!)
|Look at this sad face - how could we resist!|
|Now look, all bathed and ready to meet her new parents|
