Most of you will remember that back in September 2012, I had to made the heartbreaking decision to "rehome" my youngest corgi girl because of fighting issues. Saturday I was invited over to visit her at her new home. All the way there I lectured myself about how I "should" act. No tears necessary, this is a happy occasion. I rang their doorbell and while I was waiting, Arabelle came running and started barking. Tears started streaming down my cheeks and I hadn't actually seen her. So much for the lecture!
She was so happy to see me and I sat on the floor with her during most of my visit. Kari (her new mom) and I took Arabelle and Jenkins ( her corgi brother) outside to play fetch with the balls for a short period. She was so cute! At first she'd bring the ball back to Kari, but then she dropped it at my feet as if she wanted me to be included (oh no, it's time for those tissues again).
She's adjusted so well! Her new family loves her as much as I do and Arabelle adores Jenkins. Kari says that's because she can boss him around and he doesn't even care. There was an obvious amount of bonding and tenderness between the two.
My visit was short but then I got to see my beautiful granddaughter and her friends before they went to their high school prom. One of the girls (yellow dress) lives on a lovely farm and all the pictures were taken on her property. My granddaughter is wearing purple. I love that they choose the barn as a backdrop!
