I'm in Looooooooove!!!

Meet Otter!!
He's a 2.5 year old Beagle that I saw at the animal shelter yesterday. It was love at first sight!! There is usually a 4 day wait but my timing was right and I was able to take him home yesterday. Otter came to the shelter because his owners were moving and couldn't take him with them. He craves attention and has a big heart! He is gentle and loving and is already mending my broken heart. He was up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered... perfect!
Yes... he slept in my bed last night (well it's a king size). I slept with one eye open keeping an eye on him and we ended up going for a walk at 5:00 AM. The walking is just what I needed to burn some calories and Otter loves to be outside. With all the warm weather we've been having, there is a lot of MUD out there! So we'll have to wait a bit before we go to the dog park.
I need a nap!!
Hugs to all!
Joni
PS He doesn't mind the flash on the camera... Yea!!

WooHoo! It's Otter's Lucky Day! How wonderful for you Joni! It's so funny, I was just reading Nicolette's post about you finding a new kitty -- tell Otter he's a very fine looking cat indeed LOL!

He's also "perfectly" adorable! I wouldn't have been able to resist him either! What fun for both of you.

Oh my, Otter is a darling and I'm so glad the two of you met. Otter probably had a broken heart, too, since his owners had to leave him behind. I think this is a wonderful thing you're doing for yourself as well as precious Otter.

I'm so happy for you, Joni, and happy Otter found a good home! He is a cutie, and I love the name! I tried to e-mail you some pix, but I may not have your current e-mail address. It'll be fun keeping up on all your fun with your new housemate!!

He is so cute Joni, I'm sure he was just waiting for you to come and get him! Enjoy your walks with him. I'm sure he'll enjoy cuddling up too.

He is so cute! God knows just what we need right when we need it, doesn't He? I'm glad He has given you such a sweet thing to help heal your hurting heart. Praying for you.

There's nothing cuter than the face of a smiling beagle. Otter has landed on his feet - sleeping on the bed the first night! I have 2 beagles who also sleep on the bed. You'll love him, he looks so happy, just make sure the gate is padlocked!

Isabelle said...
