A new family member is coming!
I know this may seem fast to some of you, but we have grieved over our sweet Jakie for so many months now, and feel a need to fill the hole in our hearts left when he was put to sleep last week. This is the puppy that has captured our hearts. A couple of days ago we put a deposit on a puppy that isn't born yet, that we would receive at the beginning of February. Dave initially wanted a dog that looks like a mini golden retriever, being cream in color, but the more we looked at this little guy the more his uniqueness and cuteness grew on us. He just seemed to keep staring at us saying, "buy me". This is a mix of a cocker spaniel and a golden retriever (also called a comfort retriever or mini golden retriever). He is a rare sable color. He is coming to us from South Dakota, as we could not find anyone breeding these nearby. We will name him Dakota, AKA Koty. Isn't he a cutie?
