A Heartfelt Thank You... everyone who offered wonderful thoughts and good wishes on the adoption of my new puppies.

I heard from people all over the world:  England, Malaysia, London, Hungary, Australia, Pennsylvania, Austin,San Antonio, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Grapvine.  The outpouring of support I received was amazing.  The gardening blogosphere is filled with wonderful, caring people and I thank you all for your warm wishes and support.

The puppies are doing amazingly well and I cannot imagine my life without them.  I promise I won't turn this into a puppy blog, but I will from time to time post about their progress and puppy antics, which are hilarious!  Again, many thanks to all :)

  1. I had used your story and another in a post on my blog.

    I know it was a popular one for how many visitors clicked your link from my post. And, they are still doing so for the Crumpet story. Good luck with the girls and I for one, hope to see more of them.

  2. I have five dogs so I think gardening and dogs go well together!! I'm glad the dogs, and you, are so happy! It looks like Christmas came to your house early, too!

  3. Oh they are so completely adorable! I look forward to reading more about these girls as they join you in your garden. I wish you and the dogs a very magical Christmas.

  4. Hi Donna...I read your post that linked to my "puppy post". Thank you for that! I also read the story of Crumpet...very touching. I will continue to post on the girls. They are great but a challenge.

    TS...Yes, I agree...gardening and dogs do go hand-in-hand! My pups (all 4 of them!) follow me out to the garden every time I head out there. Good to hear from you!

    Thank you Karin! It is indeed a very special Christmas this year, for this and many other reasons! Merry Christmas to you!

  5. I'm so glad you kept the puppies -- they are beautiful and very lucky indeed! But they will be wonderful companions -- in fact, it sounds like they already are! We have 3 dogs here, all rescued -- we spend as much on their food as we do our own!

  6. Hello Diane, Our dog is a rescue too and life or the garden wouldn't be the same without him! Looking forward to seeing more of the girls in your future posts! Merry Christmas.

  7. Thanks, Cat! My fall/winter garden is waning but I can't wait to share my spring garden with the girls! Merry Christmas to you too, Cat :)

  8. They are so cute and adorable, how not to love those two! Nice names too! Happy holidays and Merry Xmas! Hope you have lots of fun with the new additions to your family Diane.
