Self Portrait with Puppy

I took these pictures of me and my new puppy Ruben this afternoon... If we look a little sad and tired, it is because we had a rough day today. We learned that my little pup's sister Dorie had a life ending birth defect, and she had to be put down this morning... She was such a sweet little girl...My sister Kathy and i stayed with her until it was over...
Ruben (that's the new pup's name) has been crying a little more today and i think it is because he really misses her company. But his new friends Zinnia and Pollyanna are doing everything they can to keep him busy and happy. Happiness and tears....

I'm so sorry that you lost a pup. More reason to love that little one you are holding. You are a trooper to have cared for them so well.

Thanks everyone...it was really hard, but i know we did the best we could for little Dorie. Ruben is wonderful. He is doing just fine with the help of the other dogs in the family. It's just like he has been here forever!
