At first there were three. Three of the cutest puppies I’d ever seen. How on earth was I going to select just one? I sat down on the floor and we opened the gate. Here they came, one and all. Her Royal Fur-ness was not going to make it easy. She wanted me to work for it.
After picking each one up several times, it became clear which puppy was mine. I held her close and she melted into me. She sighed loudly and relaxed as she tucked her head under my neck. Once I breathed in that puppy breath I knew it was her.
Let me formally introduce Lady Scarlett O’hair-a. Lady Scarlett was born on New Year’s Day and is a six week old English Golden Retriever, currently of Willow Downs.
Now, that is one cute puppy. Of course, I am biased. Lady Scarlett will be joining Olive, her big sister, and Bubba, her older feline brother, in the next month or so. Scarlett will be trained to become a therapy dog, visiting hospitals and other places where people can benefit from a bit of snuggling from Her Royal Fur-ness.
And, speaking from personal experience, she’s already a master at the snuggle.
