SAUDADE - A longing for something you already have......

Pronounced "sow-dahd-jee" this word is hard to define.

It's being in a moment so wonderful that all you can do is

mourn it's passing, even as it is happening.

Puppy Breath!

Even though you wouldn't know it by the weather, Spring has arrived!  And our hopes for a Spring puppy have come true.  Tuesday, the 25th we welcomed Venom of Crooked Creek home.  He is an all black German Shepherd. We are calling him Varick, which is a boys name of German descent that means honorable defender.  

He has been a wonderful puppy. His temperament is just perfect, confident, but thoughtful, ready to play when we are, and ready to settle down and relax when we do. Puppies are a lot of work, but it's so rewarding to open your heart to a new family member.  It's been VERY cold since he has been home, but today the sun came out at least.  It was still in the 40's but we enjoyed it anyway. 

Samantha age 4 1/2, Varick age 8 weeks 
This will be the first in a series, Varick will grow like a weed, and then we will watch Samantha grow.
