As most of you know, my deeply beloved pug, who I had for twelve years, since she was only 7 weeks old, passed away last month very suddenly and without warning.

While she will never, ever be replaced, we'd already been looking around for a while at other dogs before then, with our eye on adding a third to our family.

And as it turns out, a puppy showed up at one of the rescues here (rescued from a domestic violence situation, which makes me all the more glad to help) who we went and met, and it was puppylove at first sight all around. His name is Trouble -- I didn't choose it, I swear -- and he's a tiny, insanely cute funky mix of dachshund, pekingese, pomeranian and yorkie, and we get to go pick him up on Friday!

Yay indeed!

Here he is, btw: https://twitter.com/#!/heathercorinna/status/201737375230078976/photo/1

Hey Heather!
He looks so cute!

Congratulations to your new family member, today.

I hope he isn't all that of a trouble maker, aha.

What an adorable puppy! He looks so cute and sweet!

I understand what you are going through... My 22 year-old cat passed away a few years ago; and though we got another cat (who had also been rescued), we still miss him.

I think it is wonderful that you found him and that he has a good home now! [Smile]

Looks so cuddly! Adopting a puppy who needs a home feels even better.
