I have been looking for a new pup for mom and dad. I know that since I went to the bridge they have been lonely. So I have kept my eye out for the perfect pup for them. I finally found her, but I had to get mom and dad and this pup to meet.

First I got mom and dad and dad's boss to have a conversation about pups and kitties in the shelter. Dad's boss told him a story about how she adopted a cat and this cat had a roommate that dad's boss couldn't take. But when dad's boss told people about the cat's roommate so many people went to the pound to adopt the cat's roommate. Well, that got dad thinking about checking the animal shelter on-line, just to see what they had.

That's where he first saw this pup. He told mom to look at the animal shelter site, but mom said she couldn't look at the site unless she knew she was getting a pup that day. So that got dad thinking more. Dad wanted to wait until Christmas. That way someone would be home all day and they would be able to tick a dog to behave in the house. But, I knew how lonely mom and dad both were. And it wasn't right that I am up in heaven having a blast and mom and dad were both lonely and there was the perfect pup at the shelter for them.

So I pushed a little harder and yesterday dad said to mom: "Let's go to the shelter and see what they have. " Mom said to dad: " If we go to the shelter, I'm not leaving empty-handed."

So this morning, mom and dad did their chores. They did them soo fast they really shouldn't have bothered. Then hurry to the shelter. They saw some really sweet dogs. They saw one that looked like me. But he was a little too young and loud. They saw a sad looking Boxer. But he wasn't quite the right one. They saw a beautiful brindle Pittie. But he was getting adopted. Then I led mom and dad to the pup I picked out.

She is a golden retriever mix. She was just sitting there. Not making any noise. She was a stray and they think she is about 3 years old. Dad fell totally in love with her. (Ok, dad fell in love with her when he saw her on line). They took her for a walk. She was soo well behaved. She was so friendly and happy. I whispered in mom's ear that she would know by the end of the day that they made the right choice. So mom and dad adopted a new dog.

The dog shelter had named this dog Goldie, but mom and dad are looking for a new name. Once they get a new name for her, mom will put her on Dogster so everyone better make friends with my new little sister.

Mom and dad were very impressed with this dog. She has obviously been trained, she knows several commands. She is a good traveler. She was friendly with all the dogs in the neigborhood. And when she saw some kids she went right up to them.

She is not food crazy. She has a certain sweetness about her. She has a big purple tongue. Not a black spot but totally blue. Like she's been eating smurfs. Also she doesn't bark. We don't know if it's what she is mixed with or if she had a no bark collar and now she doesn't know how to bark. If anyone knows how to find that out let us know.

After mom and dad got sis settled in, they had to go to church. There was a visiting priest today. When he came in the church he was followed by a dog. A golden retriever. I told mom I would send her a sign and I did.

So once we get her a name, mom will get her a page and she will be the active dogster dog. I will retire It's Hard Bein' a Pup and relax in heaven knowing that I have done my final job taking care of mom and dad.

Oh Dorothy wonderful and loving fur angel does sound like you have found the perfect new pup to enter your mom and dad's lives. We are SOOOO happy for your mom and dad that they have a new pup to love, while keeping you in your own special place in their hearts.

My dad also wanted to wait a while after losing our Max and our Impy, but they made sure that I came into the parents lives, too.

Fur angels are so wise!!

Dot, you are such a good angel!! I bet you picked the perfect pup. About the barking...well I did not bark either when I first came home. My Julie bragged about what a quiet dog I was. That didn't last long. As soon as I got settled, I went about barking at every living creature that crossed my path. So, just give it some time.

We are excited to see the new pup, but we will sure miss hearing from you. I hope you will come back and write, even if it is only every now and then.

Let's go find some food to eat.

Love, Angel
