November - Day 3 - SeraPhina
The third thing I am thankful for this year is my puppy, SeraPhina. Sera just turned the big one on October 30th (her estimated birthday). I adopted her toward the end of January after looking at the shelters for weeks and weeks, honestly it was a few months. I had made it part of my weekend routine to hit all the local shelters to look for a new baby to add to our family. Each weekend I would head home heartbroken and my husband begged me to stop going because it was making me so sad.
I knew I needed just the right dog to add to our mix. I knew I wanted a female and that she had to get along with our cats. I also knew I wanted a rescue if at all possible. On a Thursday night, Sera's (then named Susie) picture was posted on the Elmore County Humane Shelter page. I instantly fell in love. I made plans to leave work early the next day so I could be first in line to meet her. As soon as they brought her to me, I knew she was the puppers I had been looking for. What I did not know was that the docile and quiet baby I held in my arms had been fixed the day before and she was still drugged a little. Her full personality began to shine in the coming days. She is a pistol as my Grandma would have said. She keeps me on my toes, makes me laugh, and demands I stop working and play with her on a regular basis. She has been the perfect little companion for me this year.
Thank you Sera for being my puppers, I love you and all your crazy!
Lots of love,
