We were not planning to get a new dog so soon after losing Murphy. We weren’t even looking. But the other day, while I was at the flea market, a woman walked past with three black Pomeranian puppies in a stroller. They were the first litter of her pet Pom, and she was looking for good homes for them. My heart melted for the smallest one, a girl. She looked like a little black bear!
I hate to think that I’m disrespecting Murphy’s memory by not waiting longer. I miss him everyday. But I also wanted a chance to give a home to another sweet dog.
And so, my dears, I would like to introduce to you our new baby Pom cutie, Lola. We’re all madly in love with her. (She’s coming to San Francisco with us!) My 11-year-old daughter, Isabella, made this video capturing the slightly mischievous side of our little dog. Let me know what you think!
Also, I want to ask you: Do you think pets pick us, instead of the other way around? There always seems to be a lot of serendipity at work in this, one of life’s strongest matters of the heart.
PS: THE WINNER OF THE PAINTED BOX IS Kim O’Brien, of K. O’Brien Jewelry. Congratulations Kim!
