Meet our newest family member

June 25, 2012

I would like to introduce our newest family member, Clover:


Many of you know that we’ve been trying to adopt a dog for a while without good luck. All that changed yesterday when we went to Pet-A-Palooza, an adoption event at the Palace in Auburn Hills. We got there and half an hour later we left with Clover, whom we had fallen in love with at first sight.

Clover is a 2-year-old, Basenji mix. She’s about 40 pounds. Here’s what else we know: She is spayed now, but gave birth in May to 9 puppies! She walks with a little limp because somewhere down the line she was shot. The high caliber bullet lodged itself in her shoulder muscle and the vet can’t remove it. She’s not in pain and she can still run; it’s just not the prettiest run you’ve ever seen.

And finally, she’s a cuddle monster. Our cuddle monster 🙂

Here’s Clover with Dave about two hours after we brought her home. Being adopted is hard work!

Thanks to everyone who entered. Lori, I’ll contact you for your address and get that quilt out to you 🙂
