Good morning everyone. Well I just had to say it before you did. Yes, we are truly nuts. Now we have gone and added one more adventure to our already full lives. As you can see she is some cunnin’. We have named her Colby. We had a sign… literally. We were in the car brainstorming names on the way to get her at WalMart (yes, you heard it right) and there at the Waterville exit was a sign for Colby College. Colby just happens to be dear Mary’s alma mater. It is also the name of one of my favorite ledges in Jericho Bay, the Colby Pup. It just seemed to fit just like the way she came to us. Nothing about our Sunday was going to be different than any other except that I just happened to be helping a friend get her generator back in the barn while Jen and the kids met her new puppy Sherman. They fell in love… so easy to do. We called and there were had two pups from the same litter available… no commitments yet.
We had been having the long family debate for weeks about the kids involvement where they swore allegiance to the cause nineteen ways to Sunday (talk is cheap). Finally late in the day Jen called only to discover that another family was going to adopt her, now the last in her litter. Long story short, after several heart wrenching phone exchanges seems that Colby was meant to come to Appleton. And we have some very happy campers on our hands… Colby included. Now Jen will have an office friend for the summer and the real work of training begins.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
