A New Blessing

My parents decided to gift themselves with a baby German Shepherd puppy this year for an early Christmas gift to themselves. They have wanted another German Shepherd for a long time. They thought it would be best to get a puppy because they have 2 small dogs and felt that a puppy would be accepted better than a large dog. The little puppy is adorable of course and very smart. He had so much fun on his walks with his new Mom and Dad.

He loved all of the Christmas company in the house too. So many new people to play with he would just plop on the floor and pass out he was so tired at times.

Unfortunately his big sisters wanted nothing to do with having a new puppy in the house. Mitchel & Dixie were not accepting him at all. After three weeks of trying their best to make this work it was decided that it just was not going to happen.

Jerry and I drove to Ellwood on Wednesday January 2nd and brought him home with us! My parents “New Blessing” is now our “New Blessing” and what a joyful little boy he is. He fit right in and is having the time of his life playing with his new big brothers all day long. He learned how to use the dog door by Friday and now takes himself out to potty whenever he needs to! Blessings come in the most unexpected wrappings!

I live in tranquil woods of western Pennsylvania. Our log is nestled on a wooded hillside surrounded by birdsong and sassafras. I spend most of my time in this peaceful setting making abstract art, greeting cards, candles, soap & jewelry in the Sassifrass Hill Studio. My husband of 25 years is a mosaic artist and he spends his spare time in the Autumn Moon Mosaic studo putting together intricate mosaic pieces that are real show stoppers!
