Cecelia, Rachael's mom, found my mom an adorable dachshund puppy! My mom and her Diane (the friend who went with my mom to meet Cecelia for the first time earlier in the week) will drive to upstate New York to get the puppy next weekend. They'll also bring along one of Diane's baby dwarf bunnies for Cecelia's granddaughter. Yippee! You've all been so, so kind to my mom--offering her condolences after Streusel died... But to have then found her this sweet puppy, Cecelia? And to then have your vet check her out at no charge? And then take her home for the week and puppysit until my mom can come get her??! (Hmm... maybe she'll be housebroken by the time my mom brings her home??!) You are a blessing!!!!
What will we name her? My mom wants to stick with a German name, honoring the Teutonic dachshund roots. Elsa? Frida? Gertie? Gretel? Ilsa? Liesel? Mitzie? Trudy? I'm setting up a poll on my sidebar--give us your vote! The poll will run one week--until my mom brings "??" home. (I can't promise my mom will pick the winning name, but I'm sure she'll appreciate the suggestions!) You can pick more than one name, but don't pick too many! I tried to change the color of the poll tally, but I can't figure it out. Sorry it's so hard to see.
