Summer Day


She arrived one day in April, but her name is Summer Day.  She’s as light as a feather floating on a breeze, and her little fur is as soft as soft can be.


It was a sad winter for my mom.  Her beloved boy Dusty, her “fine young man”, my darling little brother  passed away after a very long and wonderful life.


If you have a little dog, if you have a big dog, if you have a cat… well, you know.  They are precious babies in our lives.  Delightful companions.  Part of the family.


So we are happily welcoming this baby sister into our lives.  Will she be able to speak Spanish?  We’re not sure yet.  Will she learn how to drive a Jeep?  Probably.  Will she fill our hearts with joy?  Without a doubt!


Here’s the link to something I wrote about my Pobrecito Dusty when he was still with us.  I hope you’ll enjoy it too.  Sweet Dusty… My “Little Brother”.
