This weekend we welcomed a new dog into our family!  We adopted her from a family who had been neglecting her pretty badly and so we don't know exactly how healthy she is (we are taking her to the veterinarian first thing tomorrow) but all that matters is that we are going to give her the best home in the world!

Introducing: Darla!  Our sweet golden retriever.

 We gave her a bath and she LOVED it!  We know she loves water, loves to fetch, can sit, lay down, and shake and loves a good belly rub.  She is such a sweet girl. 

I was hesitant to get another dog so soon after Penny passed away (it's been just over a month) but you know what?  It's helping me heal from our loss and I know she needed a good home.  It will take some getting used to because she is already so different than our Penny girl, but I know she is going to be a great addition to our family.

I love her.

Welcome to our family, sweet Darla.


  1. So sweet! Welcome home darla!

  2. She is beautiful! That's so wonderful of you both to take her into your home. I am sure she will LOVE living with you and being part of your family. Good luck with sweet Darla.

  3. She's so pretty! Congrats on the new addition to your family! Goldens are the BEST!
