So, we lost both our dogs unexpectedly, within a month of each other in November.
I wasn't sure about getting another but have given in to the lure of a little velvet head in the house - it's felt so empty sad

We've had our new girl home for just under an hour and it's wonderful.
Don't want to worry her by taking too many pix, but here she is on the way home and flopped out on her bed.

Thank you so much to everyone who hand held and gave such kind, wise advice when we were going through the ringer 8 weeks ago. It was such a hard time & I'm still struggling to process some bits of it. Your words made a huge difference.

Off to argue about names now. suggestions welcome!

Ooh lovely dog, hope she quickly fills the space your others left. I'd call her Ebony.

Maybe something festive?
Mistletoe - Miss for short?

smile I'm so pleased for you - a house just doesn't feel right when it's suddenly dogless, does it? And pleased for her too.

Awww, , Beautiful girl .

Here's to a long and happy life for all concerned.

SleightOfMind Thu 29-Dec-16 21:37:42

She's a lovely girl! DC's are all in bed so she's got a chance to calm down,

She's coped with shopping delivery - very good about front door being open.

She's been sitting in the rescue for over a year. Bounced twice for sep anx so getting in there from the start.
Aware but not too anxious about us coming and going. grin
Can't wait to take her for a walk tomorrow and show her all the different shapes and sizes of dogs. I promise more pix when she's settled.

Anyhoooo Thu 29-Dec-16 23:25:54

Floralnomad Thu 29-Dec-16 23:28:22

Congratulations , she looks lovely .

ClarissaDarling Thu 29-Dec-16 23:30:41

I like Misty/misteltloe as well, or Holly! Or Mary!

taptonaria27 Thu 29-Dec-16 23:33:09

Congratulations, she looks fab. We adopted a lurcher in October and he has separation anxiety too, your poor baby waiting a year in rescue, her 2017 will certainly be so much happier than 2016!

Oh she is beautiful smile.

Brytte Thu 29-Dec-16 23:41:16

Aw - she loijs lovely. I wanted to call our black lurcher Sybil bit was vetoed by the family hmm I liked Luna too. Or Juno.

SleightOfMind Thu 29-Dec-16 23:45:06

Her rescue name is Missy so you're all being weirdly clairvoyant!
Luna is meeting with approval too Insan as are Sugar's Lara and Hebe.
We can't have Chance though because of Paw Patrol - we have toddlers!
6 names are going in the hat tomorrow. They need to please me, DH, DS1(15), DD(7), and the DTs(3) shock

We are also adopting another black pointy girl in Feb but she's come in with a nasty untreated injury and not ready to be in a busy home yet.
She's very young though and quite unaffected by her horrible start.

clumsyduck Thu 29-Dec-16 23:49:30

Aww she is gorgeous . Congrats op good luck with the name draw !

SleightOfMind Thu 29-Dec-16 23:50:19

Ooh! I like Sybil and Juno!
Just for context, DH likes Petra or Clara
DD likes Rachel or Lucy
The DTs like paw patrol names or silliness (they're 3).
DS likes.....Pygmy?!?!? and Satsuki confused

He's usually the sensible one.
