Jolene

 

This year has been a whirlwind of activity so far. We’ve carved out several weekends for travel- to Los Angeles, New York City (twice), New Orleans, Barcelona via Paris and Amsterdam. Each trip had a very different feel both because of the variety of scenery/activities and  because each time we traveled with different friends. I will write more on the trips in a later post. Have much to write about the good things going on at work also but that too will have to wait.

This morning’s post is all about Jolene.

This is Jolene (we will call her Lena affectionately).

Jolene is a three month old retriever mix (perhaps with Corgi) that we adopted from the same local animal shelter where we found Julia 6 years ago. She has to remain at the shelter while she completes all her pre-adoption tasks this week (shots, medical screening, spaying) and we will be bringing her home to major fanfare on Friday, April 13th.

Hubby and I are both so excited to have a new furry ball of joy to love and look forward to a lifetime (her lifetime) of happy memories ahead. Julia gets to play the big sister dog now and has already assumed a more responsible posture- I can see it in her gait.

Visiting the shelter brought back a flood of memories of Jenna when she was a puppy (we adopted her from a shelter also when she was about Jolene’s size). I miss Jenna so much but I know all that love we still have for her will warm Jolene’s little heart as it does for Julia.

Jonathan, Jennifer, Julia and Jolene. I like the sound of that!
