We Have a New Dog!

We have a new dog named Annie. She is a golden retriever who is four years old. We drove to Colorado Springs to meet Annie and see if she was the perfect fit for our family. She was the perfect fit so we decided to adopt her and bring her home. We got Annie from Retriever Rescue of Colorado, but she was staying with a nice foster family.

She has the same name as our old dog, but we did not name her. Her foster family picked that name and we thought it was great so we're keeping it.

I'm so happy for you and for Annie! My favorite dog of all time was our family golden retriever. His name was Buddy, not an original name but he certainly was a buddy to all. HIs favorite thing to do was take a swim in the pool and then lie on a lounge chair in the sun! I wish you many years of happiness with your new family member.

Wow! What a surprise! How did you manage to keep this a secret?

She looks gorgeous. What do you know about her history?

You should bring her with you when you come to Lexington (ha-ha). Grandma F. would really like that, wouldn't she!!!

Love,
Aunt Martha
