She is the Fifth puppy born out of nine, which means she gets the honor of wearing the hot pink collar. Helaine is also a hot pink little, and I’ve heard rumor that most hot pinks are very sweet, and easy going. It was true for Helaine, so I’m hoping that we keep going with the sweet and easy going. Eight days from now, at 11:08 AM, I will be meeting this sweet girl for the first time. I’ve been quite melancholy the last couple of days, as I’ve been looking through old photos of the day I picked up my current girl. It is a surreal feeling knowing that in just over a week I’ll be starting the puppy raising process over again. These days are so bittersweet. It doesn’t seem like Helaine and I should be nearing the end of our time together, and likewise it doesn’t feel like I should be getting another puppy already. Time just flies so quickly, and I am looking forward to my journey with Inez, and Helaine’s separate journey as an individual. I know she can do great things, and although it hurts a bit, I know she’s ready to learn and do and see more than what I can provide for her. It’s time. She know’s it’s time, and I do too. Stay tuned! There will be puppy pictures like you wouldn’t believe!
