A new addition...


This week we welcomed a new addition to our family. His name is "Beau." Beau means "handsome" in French. I think he's aptly named.


He's 9 weeks old, and we're not altogether sure of his lineage. In fact the vet and some others from the rescue organization think that his "mother" might have been a substitute. {Sometimes in rescue situations, it's any port in the storm.} We don't know, but he and his sister certainly don't look much like their black and white terrier mix mother.

We brought him home on Tuesday, and we're in love. Who wouldn't be?


This little guy is going to take up a lot of my spare time for the next few months. He's an all time job at the moment. He's still missing his sibling, so I'm giving him a lot of extra love and attention. He's won my husband's heart too...


He's a bit of a rascal when he's awake, and then he drops like the dead and takes a nap...


He's already captured my heart. I found him through the website "Adopt a Pet." It's a great site where you can look for pets in the area you live. Rescue organizations of all kinds post pets that are available, when you find a possible match, you contact the particular organization that houses the pet you'd like. We adopted Beau through the organization "Paws and People Rescue" in Denver. It was a wonderfully smooth process.

I might not be doing quite as much sewing in the next few months, but I've got a really good excuse!

ohhh Suzanne! He's perfectly perfect in every way!

I need a new furry friend, I miss my Louie so much (it's been a year) and I love puppies... but they do take so much time.
I never look online or at the pet store because I know I won't be able to say no.

Hoping when I retire, and have more time . . .

loving your new Beau!
