My Ultimate Concierge and I, on September 5, are flying to Coral Springs, Florida, to pick up our new arrival, our new bundle of joy weighing in at approximately 11 pounds. We are feeling so positive about our decision to bring a puppy into our home, though we have not stopped grieving over the loss of Orchid, whose daily presence brightened each day of our lives for eleven and one half years.
We realized our lifestyle lacked the uncomplicated and loving relationship between man and pooch.
I yearn for a relationship that is 100% emotionally uncomplicated because of a simple formula called unconditional love. My Ultimate Concierge and I will have that once again. And, we as a couple, will enjoy sharing our love with a pooch.
A Blessing in Disguise
I had wanted a female soft coated Wheaten Terrier. However, the litter of nine has seven males and two females and the females were taken. I was disappointed, but after some thinking, I realized it was a blessing in disguise because I knew I would compare the new pooch to Orchid. Our new baby boy will be able to be his own pup because, darlings, we know, men are from Mars! Women are from Venus. Our new little Sumo male, (a friend just gave him the title) will enter our lives, his own man.
I am in the process of hiring a trainer, buying a crate, ordering the right food and buying the right toys and the perfect carry case. My new friend, Sandy, who is our breeder, has sent me all the necessary information.
I am a believer in listening to those who know more than I, so I plan to shop with her shopping list on and off line.
I’m Having a Naming Contest & You’re Invited!
I am planning a doggie naming contest to name our little Sumo boy.
I favor Hawaiian names, names that have to do with nature and inspiration.
Naturally, we have been toying with some names but I have an open mind and would love to enlist your help.
I am so excited that I will soon, once again, have a walking and writing partner. A little confidante that I can share my issues with, who will just kiss me as I talk. I have missed the companionship of my darling Orchid more than I thought possible, and as I write this, I have such a heavy heart that she is gone, forever.
I feel such a sadness that her life was cut short, but such is life, and I am grateful I was blessed with the best pooch in a million.
If I had wished upon a star, which you all know I do, I could not have wished for a more perfect companion, other than my Ultimate Concierge.
My heart is open to loving another pooch, and so is my Ultimate Concierge’s heart. My arms are open to having a new little puppy run into them and I will welcome my little Sumo with hugs and kisses and laughter and wonderful healthy treats!
Won’t You Help Us Choose a Name?
Help me, please, choose a name. Please comment below! The day is almost upon us and my Ultimate Concierge and I want to be able to gather our pup in our arms and say, “Hi…”
So what name will be on the tips of our tongues and on the top of our hearts?
