Today is Monday morning and we have had Miss Ethel, aka "Puggy", for less than 48 hours. She has already found her place in our home and our hearts.  We had been thinking about getting a little girl pug for a couple of years. Our pug mix, Fred, was needing a sister. I found the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue web site back in January of this year, looked it over and sent in an adoption application. I corresponded with Trudy and she assured me that when Fred's little sister came along, she would let me know. Two months to the day I applied, I got an email from Hope telling us about Puggy. At first I was a little apprehensive, because she is an older dog-nine years
old. Fred is eight and I really pictured us getting a dog under five. I  talked it over with my husband and we decided to go for it. After all,
Fred is so active and loving at eight, if something happened to us we would hate to think that Fred's age kept him from a loving home. Dana came and did our home inspection and we "passed". Needless to say we were very excited and couldn't wait to bring our little girl home. Melissa, Ethel's foster mom, kept in contact with me and was so great about answering our questions.

Saturday we met with Melissa and got our little girl. We were so excited all the way up to Louisville and on the way home. Miss Ethel took everything in stride in her new home. She does have some vision problems and we keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't run into anything. She is a mama's girl and follows me everywhere. Her and Fred have had a few misunderstandings, but I believe they are working through them. She is a very confident little dog who is used to being the boss and you can tell she has been very well loved all her life. She sleeps on her special pillow (that came with her) during the day and at night sleeps with my husband, Kenneth and myself. She is discovering toys and has a favorite stuffed dog toy that she loves to chase after and grab and shake. She is so silly acting at times and it seems her personality is coming out for all to see very quickly. She is such a good girl, no accidents in the house--I still can't believe that!! She just wants to be near her people and be loved.

I want to thank Kentuckiana Pug Rescue and all their wonderful
volunteers for the wonderful work they are doing and for helping us bring our little girl to her new forever home.
