I'm just blown away at the amazing friends my family has.
The day after Eli passed, Mum's closest local friend gave her some money, to be used to get another dog when our hearts were ready. On Wednesday, Mum thought she might start gathering contact details for dog rescues, and rang one of the local vets.
As it happened, one particular dog that had been in that morning was looking for a home. She had wagged her tail too hard into something and split it open, and had been in to get it looked after. So we were put in touch with Greyhound Adoptions Western Australia. We arranged a playdate for Masai and Shay to meet and get to know each other on neutral ground to see if they'd get along, and they did, so this morning, she came home.
It's very soon after our darling E, some might argue too soon, but Shay is a beautiful dog who needed a home and we had a forever loving home to give her. She basically dropped into our laps. Somehow we ended up with another brindle, I have no idea how. We don't look at a dog's appearance, we look at personality. We've had two black and white dogs, a tan and white, Masai [whose colour I'm not sure how to describe] and now two brindles, one dark and one medium.
So, HF, meet Shay <3
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
