In which they meet for the first time and it's love at first kiss.

Let's face it, if it was a pony she wanted, I would have made it happen. ;)

Catahoula Hound/Shepherd Mix as yet unnamed.  Adorable and smart as all get out!

We have a 2-year-old Catahoula/Aussie who looks a lot like that. I love that mix of breeds! They are incredibly loyal dogs and smarter than most people.

Welcome to the "what was I thinking" club! Adorable. 

 

And as much as our puppy has driven me crazy, pets are such a huge blessing. Especially when dealing with trauma, fear, anxiety, grief, etc. And what could be more of a symbol of hope for the future than a sweet baby puppy that has so much growing up to do? 

 

Good job mama.

Oh my! Gorgeous! What a beautiful puppy! And girl.

Catahoulas are absolutely the most loyal, devoted dogs ever. So smart. So much energy. I big puffy heart them. :)

At least it's not a pony. :D

Anything that can bring a smile like that to her face is worth the work. Long ago, in some of the darkest moments of my life, it was a dog in my bed and my mom on the phone that helped me walk through them. Whatever it takes, mama.

How are they doing?

 

So sweet.

 

Thinking of you guys and really glad it's not a pony!   :svengo:

Oh, we are in the same boat!  We have had him 2.5 weeks.  I almost gave him away to a nice dog lady last week, but my little guy went into absolute hysterics and I relented.  I dreamed all night about how to get rid of it, but I'm working on acceptance.  It's a lot of work.

Oh my goodness, thank you! What a happy video!

A side tangent: I am sharing all of these pics and videos with kids here. I wish you could hear the squeals and excitement. It is perfect timing. We lost our catahoula in Dec, after a fight with lymphoma. Seeing your baby now is just the right thing to move along the healing here, too. Puppies are magic. Even DH was misty eyed at your baby pics! So beautiful. They are wonderful dogs.
