A new Dog ... same tricks

Life has slowly returned to almost normal. There has been no spinning, no knitting, no carding, no dyEing. The dog sweater I was making will be frogged .... sigh. I will find a new project today.

I recently came upon a fabulous quote, which is perfect:

“A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.” -Erica Jong

Jaeger has come to live with us! He is a beautiful 2 + year old mutt with a big old heart & soulful eyes. His zest for adventure is extraordinary. He came to us by way of Tennessee & both my husband & I are looking forward to his first N'oreaster. I wonder how much snow, if any, he has frolicked in??

Jaeger's lineage is unknown. I think if a DNA test was done, he would be a "Heinz 57" ... he has a beautiful black coat, but if you look carefully, you will see shades of brown/brindle on his hips!

I am delighted that someone saw his potential & rescued him from a shelter setting. Thank you, Carol!
I am delighted that a group was kind enough to offer him & others, another chance at Life here in the North East. Thank you,Forever Home Rescue, NE!

Today, I introduce Jaeger to the world!! Welcome to your Forever Home, big guy!

Welcome Jaeger! You say a new dog will never replace the love of the old dog. Somehow I feel Jaeger will move into your hearts very quickly. He is beautiful. Good luck on getting a new dog so quickly to fill your void.
