She might be the one

I was poking around tonight on the internet just looking. I decided to see what boxers were maybe, just maybe in a shelter. Imagine my surprise when I actually found one! She reminds me a lot of Annie but is still different. She is in the shelter in Murray, Ky which is only about 40 miles from us.

I immediately sent an email to let them know that I was very interested in this precious dog. She is young, but an adult. I would guess 2 or so. I forwarded the information to work so I can print and fill out the application in full. I am so excited! I will keep yall posted.

You know, I told yall that Joe had shingles really bad? Well, what I didn't tell you was that he has been in the hospital the past 2 nights. There is not much that can be done for shingles other than medicine and pain management. This latest outbreak of shingles for Joe was one of the worst. Twice before he has had to be admitted to the hospital for pain management. When I saw him yesterday after work he had not slept for over 24 hours, save an hour here and there. Even with the strong pain meds he was not able to sleep. Last night he fell asleep about 10pm and slept until 6am this morning. It was just what he needed. Between the medicine and the sleep and rest he was able to come home today. I am truly thankful for our wonderful doctor and the great nurses at Western Baptist Hospital.

He didn't have any of the food from the BBQ on the River this year but guess what? He has been marinating a shoulder for 2 days and will grill it tomorrow. It will be most delicious and it will definitely cost a ton less than buying some goodies downtown.

I feel great about us getting a new addition to our family soon. Goodness knows Sophie is ready........and the rest of us are too.

That is exciting you might have found a pup! Can't wait to see hear more about it.
Sorry that Joe has shingles. I have heard it is pretty awful! I am sure the sleep helped a lot. I hope you are having a great weekend!

Hugs for Joe. Hope he is feeling better soon. Can't wait to hear more info on the new girl and hopefully see a picture!

Oh poor Joe, being that sick just sucks. I hope he gets well quickly. And a pound dog, fabulous! I always prefer adopting from the pound since those are the first to die. Rescue's are great but those dogs have time, pound dogs don't. Good luck!
