Big Dog Fix

What are the odds? I started a new Bible Study and one of my leaders has two Irish Wolfhounds. I about jumped across the table to hear more about them. She was so sweet and said we were welcome to come by anytime to meet them. So last weekend, we headed over and spent a couple hours watching and loving on them. More like, we were being loved on. My heart was just pittering away. Look at these beautiful giants.

When we arrived, one was standing up on the chain-link fence, ready to greet us. She was taller than my hubby. My heart was lost on the first "lean." They circled us, and were very eager to start the lovin'

The one in the front is Brady. He is only 7 months old. The other once is Callie, and she is a year and a half. 

The owner is a tiny little lady, and I was so impressed at how well trained both the dogs were. Callie even "prayed" in her down position.

I can't even put into words how full my heart was when we left. Every time I look at these pictures I can't NOT smile! How can we resist such a gentle giant, such a precious face and such a huge heart to just love US! I had to look at the calendar again, to see how soon it would be for our own giant again.

Even better news... yesterday I got a call from the rescue we use. They have a dog for us, think it would be a perfect fit. I am sure you know how hard it was for me to not just hang up the phone and RACE over there. I had to remain calm, ask the questions and then tell them I had to confer with hubby. Either way, the week after Thanksgiving, Lord willing, there will be a new Gentle Giant in our home. 

Stay tuned...

We're so happy for you that you will soon have another Gentle Giant in your home and your hearts. Mama still pines for Danes even though she loves us, and she gets all giddy when she sees a Dane or mastiff or IWH at the vets. IWH's are also wonderful doggies even though mama's heart belongs to Danes. We can't wait to meet the new addition.

Aaaw we hope it works out at the rescue! We can't wait to hear about your first visit and see the pictures! Lots of love, Indigo and Malach

I can't wait to see your new doggie pal.

I understand completely wanting a big dog fix. Glad you were able to spend time with those wonderful wolfies.
