The adventures of Zoey

A sweet little trouble maker has made her way into our hearts. It all started when I decided to check out a "discounted" puppy (being the clearance crazy person that I am) at a little petshop in town. She was a three month old "silky-chon" so I asked to meet her. Right away this bundle of energy ran over grabbed a toy and went crazy! She was kissing me, bringing me toys and just plain adorable. I couldn't believe that anyone would look over her. After several attempts to reach Todd, I reluctantly left without leaving a deposit, hoping that she would be left if we returned.

Soon after, I talked to Todd to which I said, "I found her!" The whole family returned to the pet shop later that day and sure enough our little puppy was there waiting for us. We all agreed she couldn't stay there any longer!

When we brought Zoey home, everyone crowded around her crate calling for her to come out. Scared that these giants would eat her whole, she stayed tucked inside her crate until the big people back off.
Since we were dog sitting for Todd's parents, Zoey's first encounter with a "grown-up" dog other than her mom was quite exciting! She tried everything to play with Rascal, but the little ankle biter just set him on the run! Slowly, they learned to play (Zoey thought she needed every toy in Rascal's mouth) and they began playing tug-of-war with everything they could find. It was so fun to watch!
Now, we are without the extra dog, and Zoey will be able to adjust to life as the "dog of the house". She is never without attention and love and she seems to enjoy all of it. Zoey loves to be near us whether happily chewing on a bone, ripping up newspapers she finds and especially when she is exhausted from all the hard work she does (hey, being the littlest thing in the house can be hard work too!).
Signs of our deceased Haley are still around, but Zoey has brought puppy love back into our home. On Saturday, I watched Caleb retrieve a picture of Haley and show it to Zoey. I'd like to think that perhaps Haley and Zoey would have learned to be good play mates as well.

We are so thankful that God saved this little discounted puppy just for us.

Welcome, Zoey!!
