Are you prepared for some puppy cuteness? Yes, we got a puppy. Most of my blog readers are “real life” friends and family, so you already know about our newest addition, but my blog wouldn’t be complete without a proper introduction to Clover.
Clover joined our family about a month after the loss of Hannah. We thought we would wait a bit before finding a new pet, but we missed Hannah’s presence in our home too much to be without a dog for much longer. We had decided long before Hannah died that our next dog would be a rescue pup. We browsed Petfinder.com, and this little black lab mix jumped out at us. She was named “Jill,” but after several in depth rounds of family voting, we decided on “Clover.” (I was later dismayed to find out that there is a popular cartoon character with a pet named Clover. We had no idea.) She was only about nine weeks old when we adopted her, one of nine puppies in an abandoned litter. Can you imagine!
These photographs are of Clover with her pal, Bailey. Bailey isn’t our dog, but she has been quite the little (big!) mother to Clover. They have a cute, funny relationship.
And here is our girl at 4 months old. She’s growing fast, and we soon won’t have a little puppy anymore!
