So, we have Dixie.
We adopted Dixie from our county shelter. She had been picked up as a stray. For the first time in my life, I have a dog that belongs to ME. Not my husband's dog, or my kids' dog, but mine. This sweet girl follows my every step. When I pull back the shower curtain, she's on the rug. When I go to the bathroom, she either sneaks in with me, or is sitting right outside the door when I open it. She is my little shadow.
I am enjoying this sweet dog so much. When I watch TV, she is right up with me. The only time she isn't with me is at night. I don't let her in my bed..for two reasons. Nick has a thing about having a dog in the bed. But, he's gone..right??? I don't think it's fair to either of them to let this dog in my bed for 9 months, then put her on the floor. It would take adjustment on her part and a few sleepless nights on ours. The second reason is this I recently bought new bedding. I will write more about the new bedding soon. I have other new things to share!
So, she sleeps in a sweet little bed so close to my bed that I can reach down and touch her. She prefers it that way.
This is my deployment buddy and beyond. I can't believe how much I love this dog already :)
This is Dixie with me the day we brought her home. We connected right away!
Dixie and me...til the man comes home. She's a perfect little shadow.
