We Got A Puppy! This is Hope! She is a nine week old Golden Retriever! My family and I got her on Sunday in PA!
She is such a sweet little puppy. We’ve only had her for a few days but already her personality is shining. She is so cuddly and loves to lay right next to you at all times. She also really loves crinkly sounds. I’m not sure how better to explain than just imagining crushing a water bottle. She is also really obsessed with grass. She lays and rolls around in it and sometimes tries to eat it. We have been stopping her as much as we could but she will seriously eat it so quick.
If you didn’t know, our family dog passed away this past March. It has been so hard accepting and learning how to move on. Coming home everyday is challenging because the house just feels so empty without her. She was such a light in all of our lives. We miss her more than I could ever probably put into words.
When we started to think about the idea of getting another dog, we all felt a little bit awkward talking about it. It has only been five months since she passed away. We didn’t want to feel like we were replacing her because we knew that wasn’t possible. The love she brought us is irreplaceable. Still, there was a void. We talked and talked, and my family decided that by bringing another dog into our home, we weren’t replacing her. We see it as wanting to give another dog the love and the life that we were able to give her for fifteen years. Thats what she would want.
We think if that if she could meet Hope, she would love her so much. She’s such a good puppy and has so much love. If you would like to see little updates about her every once in a while, let me know because I would love to do them. Golden retrievers grow so quick and so I think it would be fun if we can all watch her grow.
