Happy PINK Saturday everyone!
I know I'm reaching a little bit on the PINK theme but I've been gone so long and I have lots to share, so I hope you'll cut me a little slack this one time!
We left two weeks ago to attend my youngest dd's college graduation in Ohio. It was a wonderful day and we are so proud of her!
She graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. This Fall she will begin a two year program to be certified as a translator in American Sign Language then she plans to pursue a Masters in Music Therapy.
Oh to be so young and have your whole future ahead of you!
And while we were in Ohio,
we picked up the newest addition to our family.
Meet Bella! Isn't that the cutest little PINK tongue!
Poor little Bella has been through the mill, literally and figuratively.
She was born in a puppy mill in New York where she spent the first eleven months of her life. She was then taken to a horrible dog auction.
This chain was welded around her neck for the auction and shows her auction number and USDA tag.
If it weren't for the wonderful rescue group HALO, she would have been sold to another puppy mill where she would have spent the rest of her life in a wire cage forced to continuously breed.
There's that cute PINK tongue again!
Bella is a purebred Havanese and turned one year old in April. After she was rescued from the auction, she spent the next two months at her foster Mom's, learning how to be a pup and how to trust humans. I have wanted a Havanese for a long time so when Chipper passed away in April, I decided to see if there was a Havanese rescue and thus discovered HALO. She is the sweetest little thing and is learning so fast.
When she was rescued her beautiful coat had been shaved down almost to the skin and she only weighed 10 pounds, as you can see in the pictures HALO took of her.
But she has already gained two pounds and her hair is starting to grow in. She has quickly learned how to walk on a leash and has only had two "accidents" in the house.
Everyday she makes me laugh as she grabs my slippers and adds them to her collection of stuffed animals on the couch.
