Puppy #2 came two years later. She was only 6 weeks old when we brought her home. Born on May 10th, Mother’s Day of 2009…at 6 weeks, she was just in time for Father’s Day. And this time my husband was home and recouperated from his long hospitalization and its aftermath. So we hid our baby yellow Lab in the garage. But, Ray, looking for a cold beer, opened the breezeway door leading into the garage and the jig was up!
After the initial shock, Ray and Choco (and our cats Sandy and Lumpy) accepted “Amazing Grace” into the family and onto the couch.
