Well, Lucy and I have been missing for a couple of weeks. Partially because Lucy's Human has had a migraine for the last 14 days, and partially because we were working on a little project.
I'm going to tell you all a little story. As you all know, I've really been wanting to get a companion for Lucy. And about 4 weeks ago, maybe a little longer, I saw what had to have been one of the most capturing boxer faces (other than Lucy's of course) that I've ever seen... Without further ado... Here is Duke!
Well, I've been thinking and dreaming about Duke ever since I saw his beautiful face. However, I didn't think that my fiance was going to agree to getting another boxer. After all, I've been arguing that with all that's going on in our lives, and is going to be going on for the next several years, this just isn't a good time for a puppy. And frankly, I haven't recuperated from Lucy's puppydom! But, this isn't a puppy!
I couldn't get Duke off my mind. I just felt like this boy was meant to be a member of our family! But, last night, Rob told me that if it was what I really wanted, then I should get the dog! As is his style, he took my breath away and made me the happiest girl on the planet. (And I'm sure that he's going to love Duke as much as Lucy and I do!)
Lucy and I will be making a 3 1/2 drive sometime in the next several days to introduce the two boxers. If all goes well, Lucy will have a "brudder" and Duke will have a new forever home! Duke is about 4 years old, but we don't know for sure because he's a rescue dog. His foster mom tells me that he's very silly and I can't wait to meet him!
