I don't want to say it's been especially hard on me, but wow. I really need to have a pack mate. Badly.
Anyway, Mom and Dad were so concerned about me that they called my breeder and had a long talk with her. They had spoken before about adding to our family, but the timing was such that it wouldn't have been fair to Cammie. Mom and Dad wanted to have lots of time to devote to her. But now ... even though it was early after losing my Cam, they all knew I needed someone.
We drove out to Missouri - to my homeland! - to Polargold Headquarters. I got to see EVERYONE - to include my biological mama and daddy! My daddy is going to be 16 very soon, so it was really cool to get to see him. And guess what?!? My mama remembered me! She really did! I remembered her, too.
I loved everyone I saw there (especially my breeders, but they aren't up for adoption) and especially hit it off with this guy:
|"Are you my new mom?"|
"Hey. Don't look at the camera unless she gives you a treat!"
That's Ragnar, schmoozing up to my mom, me, Maeve (one of Cammie's granddaughters -- a grand champion!), and dad. To make a long story short, out of the field of candidates to adopt, I chose Ragnar. He chose us, too.
We've been taking long walks together:
We like to relax on the deck together afterwards:
And we relax in the evenings together:
"Got your footy-foot!"
Sometimes, we even settle down together! Say "hi" to everyone, Ragnar!
"He's such a Viking!"
Let me make a proper intro, now that I've shown you what a really cool guy he is! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my new little brother, Ragnar!
|Polargold's Einherjar -- Ragnar!|
That's right - he's my little brother! Not just adoption-wise, but we have the same mama!!! OK, technically, he's my half-brother, but to me he's my brother!
I just love him and he loves me and I've been such a happier girl since he joined the family! We'll give you more details in the days to come, but for now, please help me welcome Ragnar!!!
