So what do you do when Cavalier Rescue is looking
for a good home for a breeder's retired mama dog,
and thinks your home would be perfect for her?
Well, you agree.
Meet Emunah (which is Hebrew for "faith"),
a ruby-colored Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
|Sorry about the fuzzy pictures!|
She is 8 years old, has had many litters of puppies,
and is a little like that aunt who always gave you
crunching big hugs, and asked about your love life.
Emunah came home with us today from her foster home . . .
the same foster home that sheltered our Dylan Dog.
Dylan looked askance at the interloper at first.
But after a surprisingly short time, Emunah left the sanctuary
of Anne's lap, and joined Dylan and Stuffed Chicken on the study sofa.
Dylan is a little leery still, but since Emunah shows
no interest at all in molesting Stuffed Chicken,
we are not expecting major conflicts.
Just the usual sibling stuff.
Actually, I expect Emunah will treat Dylan much like
she probably treated her puppies, with Tough Love.
In the long run, despite any early bumps, it's good for most dogs
to have another canine in the house, someone who speaks the same language.
We are seriously considering changing or at least modifying
Emunah's name, as even we are having trouble remembering it.
It can't be Emma; there's a new family baby
about to be born with that lovely name! -- Cass
