I feel empty since Baki and my grandma left this life. I feel alone, alone, alone, and empty again. My days are long, I’ve got no enthousiasm and no creativity. I’m not even kntting. I’m trying to give me some time to do whatever I want but I want nothing else than eating Cheetos and taking naps. I’m talking a lot to my cats and I’m trying to convince them to become dogs with inconclusive results.
Meanwhile, I’m cheering me up with the only thought that makes me smile: someday soon, I’ll adopt a puppy. As soon as Baki was gone, Robert and me started looking for a little one. I don’t like the idea of “replacing” someone I love because my love for Baki will ever be unique but somehow, yes, we need to fill the place she left as soon as possible. We want to fill the emptiness.
We scanned the adds to find the perfect puppy. Ideally we’d like a golden retriever or a labrador, or even better, a mix. We’d like the puppy to be ready to be adopted around April 22 (one month after Baki’s death) and bonus points to a dog looking slightly mean so I’ll feel safer when walking late at night (have you ever seen a gloden retriever looking mean? I don’t but oh well!) We’d like a puppy coming from a family having a litter in a house full of kids.
The first add we looked at was the good one. Two families in Montreal’s suburbs mate their dogs – daddy is a golden retriever and mommy is a black lab x golden! We fell for the smaller of the litter, she looks a lot like her black mom but she has tan spots like a rottweiler. I’ve got doubts about her genes but I found out that tans spots are common mismarks for the labradors. These mismarks are considered as a flaw but it makes her even cuter to me! And she looks disguised as a rotweiler!
We’ll get her on April 24. Since then I’m making sure the house is correct for a puppy and I’m trying to convince the cats that they’ll be happy to have a new canine sister!
