Sookie aka Patches
Sookie found a home. I know several of you fell in love with her too, but distance and such made it difficult. I'm really happy with the people who are taking her because she is only moving next door. I feel so lucky that I will be able to continue watching her grow up.
The funny thing is, she is going to the people we thought of first, when she came into our world by surprise. Our neighbors lost a dear friend, a 13 year old yellow Lab named Blue back in August, and when Surprise Puppy popped out we immediately thought of them. But we didn't know if it would be too soon, etc. I introduced Sookie to them a week ago and they fell in love. One day last week they took her home for about 3 hours to see how she fit in with everyone (they have 3 sons) and a cat. When they brought her back, they let me know they wanted her and we set up a date for her to go. The youngest boy has renamed her Patches and I think they will all be fine, but if not, she'll only be right next door. :0)
A couple of weeks ago, Sookie went to the vet and got her first shots, I snapped this with the cell phone while she hid under the bench, lol. Couldn't remember if I had shared it, if I had, oops!
She discovered the grandkids' nerf soccer ball - she loves it! Flips it and rolls it and bites it.
Adrianna watching her. Addy and the puppy get along pretty well. These were all snapped with the cell phone Sunday - yeah we still have nice weather - shocking!
Sookie kept zipping between Addy's legs and biting the bottom of her dress, lol.
She's so feisty and fun!
Playing with daddy.
She will be missed by us all, especially her mommy.
