Happy new year, friends!
For the many, many years since my Jake passed away, I have been dreaming of and hoping for another dog. All my friends, children and family have been after me in one way or another to just do it. I went online and to the shelters and always stepped away. Couldn't.
But my friend Suzanne started the search again and we went out looking. It was easier, but I didn't find a shelter dog. And then there was a link to a little dog in a foster home on ny-petrescue.org. Maggie and her sisters made sure I went to meet her. Maggie came along and confirmed the fit as perfect.
Meet my new pal, Stitch. She is adorable and dear and is indeed, just the one I was searching for. I didn't know it until I found her. Actually, I think she found me.
So if I have a word for the new year, it is certainly Stitch. And really, isn't she just the cutest lil thing? For whatever reason, there is always a turn in the road that leads to a happier path. And she certainly put me on it.
Wishing that for all of us in 2014. Hoping it is a year full of discovery, joy and love! xo
