"Well, dad, since we haven't had ANY snow this year, at least we could enjoy a 60° day meandering in the back yard today." Zsofia declared. "I think our guests Olive, Shayna and Hazel are enjoying the beautiful weather, too."

Today is our dearly departed Benson's gotcha day. After flying into the airport in 2016, Benson walked into the house and immediately made friends with all the other members of the White Dog Army. He was gentle, sweet and kind. Of all the white dogs here in the house, only Zsofia and Opal will remember him. I say "Hi" to him every night as I do to all the members of the White Dog Army who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
"Hazel decided that, after we awaken in the morning, the best place to wait for breakfast is on the bed soaking in the early morning sun streaming from the three windows in the bedroom." Lilly commented. "I thnk she has a great idea, so I think I'll join her."
I think we're settling in just fine! I'm working from home this week to ensure domestic harmony, but there have been absolutely no issues with our three gentle visitors.
The only challenge so far has been my difficulty getting out of bed since Olive, Shayna and Hazel have decided that sleeping pressed up against me provides comfort for each of them. Olive sleeps on the pillow next to me, Shayna sleeps to my right and Hazel sleeps to my left. Zsofia fills the remaining space at the end of the bed. Whew!
Here's the big reveal!
Our dear friend Deb had a knee replacement, but there were complications from the surgery. She was boarding her dogs in a lovely facility, but the expense was rising due to her extended stay in the hospital.
Deb's the three babies are now residing with the White Dog Army until Deb can once again go home and enjoy her babies. Here are photos of their pick-up and meet-and-greet. My dear friend Colette helped me with everything.
The coon hound's name is Hazel. The Sharpei is Shayna and the adorable Chihuahua mix is Olive. They'll be with us for a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
"So, dad, we have yet another unknown pup in tonight's blog. Now, really, what's the story? You're starting to concern us." whimpered each and every member of the White Dog Army. "Ah, kids, tomorrow is the big reveal. You'll just have to wait one more day."
