It has been a long and somewhat difficult summer for me. After returning home from the beach in the beginning of July, my beloved Cocker Spaniel, Tawnee Renee, passed away. Anyone who has ever owned a pet has experienced the loss of pet. Tawnee was with our family for 13 years and I loved that dog like she was a child. That was even how I felt about her, as my third child. Even though the loss of my Tawnee broke my heart, after about 6 weeks I realized I needed to get another dog. I am a dog lover at heart and the thought of not having one of my own made the pain of losing Tawnee that much worse.
So, I would like to introduce my new puppy, Ruby Renee Rojas. She is named after the ruby slippers in my favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz, and also named Renee in honor of Tawnee Renee. Ruby is a 9 week old miniature Dachshund. She is black and tan and she looks just like my son’s dog, Coca Cola. She is absolutely adorable! And although I haven’t had much sleep in the last week, I am so glad that I got her.
