Wintertime Puppy


Yesterday, friends from Ohio brought us a puppy.

Actually, they brought up two puppies. One for us, one for a friend.

Puppies are expensive around here. Too many people paying too much for faux-kids maybe? Whatever the cause, finding an affordable puppy that will fit in well with our life was a challenge. But in November, a friend reached out to offer me one of her German Shepherd-Great Pyrenees puppies. I was so thrilled!

He’ll be a big dog. Even now he’s rambling bundle of oversized paws, thick bones, and shaggy fur. He’s full of confidence and puppy enthusiasm. Luba is being patient with him as he climbs on her and follows her around.

We’re calling him Björn. This evening, his sister leaves for her new home an hour north of us, and our crowded, tiny house will settle into life with one more member.

Getting a puppy in January is a bit more challenging than getting a summertime pup. Cold and snow and winterstorms make everything feel a bit harder. But it’s also exciting to add a bit of frolick into the winter evenings!

    Awesome! I have a Great Pyrenees and she is the best dog ever. She weighs 120lbs & is a loving ball of fluff with her people.
