She wears her heart on her side!

There have been many people that have played a major role in my life while going through infertility. My husband is #1 on that list, but there is also a canine that has cheered me up when I am sad. She wears her heart on her sleeve side. Literally her fur makes a heart on her side but she also expresses her emotions freely and openly all the time! Wouldn't it be nice if we were like that and didn't hold in our emotions???

I will start off by telling you how we picked her. When were hiking at Enchanted Rock this guy walked past with this adorable dog and was just the right size for what we I went up to him and asked him what kind of dog it was and he told us a Brittany Spaniel. So when we got home we research that breed of dog and decided that we wanted one. She was more difficult to get than we expected because there were not any Brittany's in our area or even our state!!! We search online and found a breeder that we were comfortable with and agreed to fly her here. I excitingly picked her up at Hobby Airport and she was shaking and scared from the flight. We did see a picture of her online but........little did we know that she would have a special mark on her side that would bring a smile to my face.

It was perfect timing to get a dog because by the time we were going to start a family she would be out of her puppy stage (there was a lot that we didn't know at this time). Little did we know that our puppy would be 4 and we are still trying for our family and we also didn't know that our sweet little puppy would take awhile longer to mature than we thought. So here we are laughing every day at the things she does....and appreciating the blessing she has been in our lives!!! It just makes me smile when I see her heart on her side.

We just found out that we might be taking a mini vacation before our BIG vacation!!! I will call it vacation #4 1/2 since we already have vacation #5 planned. I will update when the details get firmed up. I am truly thankful for the unexpected blessings!!!!
