She’s here! She’s absolutely all the wonderful things you told me, Debbie. We’ve been cuddling for the last hour. She’s not too sure about her surroundings (the hard wood floors between rooms are going to take a little adjustment, I think), but she seems sure about me — all she wants to do is be close enough to me that I can rub her head. She’s the sweetest dog I’ve ever met — and she’s beautiful and smart besides. I feel very very lucky. Thank you all a thousand times. You are my heroines! I’ll keep you posted, but for now Cheyenne says it’s time for more pets!
