Welcome to our new "family" member

On the same day that we had to say farewell to our Angel Ciara, our little grandbipeds also had to part with their sweet black lab Gypsy.  Some of our longtime followers may remember this photo of Gypsy with K, C, and J.

Gypsy was the first "child" in the family, preceding K's birth by about a year.

She was always a very happy girl, even at the end when she struggled to get up and down.  Finally at the great age of 13, she decided it was time to cross over that Rainbow Bridge.  Our vets had a lot of teary humans to deal with that day as both Ciara and Gypsy made their last visit on the same day, October 6, 2016.

But now there is great joy for K, J, and C.

This week a very sweet little girl joined the family - meet Miss Ruby!!!  Ruby is 14 weeks old and part American and part English Golden Retriever.

Twin J is showing her how to use his iPad.

Ruby has the sweetest personality and so far has been the model puppy.  So far she hasn't figured out how to destuff her new toys.  

She and Misty got to have a playdate this week at Ruby's home and had so much fun playing together.

Ruby has a lot to say already.

As you can see, Ruby made this family very happy.

We had a very fun day yesterday, so today was a great day of rest.

What an adorable video. Ruby and Misty are about the same size.
I love how Ruby bows and barks out her invitation to play.
We are so sorry about Gypsy and Ciara running off to the Rainbow on the same day. They left their paw prints at their homes for the new wee ones to follow. Gypsy did a good job raising the J,C and it is Ruby's turn to get them through middle and high school. I'm so glad Misty and Ruby got along
Hugs madi and mom

I think Angel Gypsy would be happy to see that the circle of life is continuing in this beautiful family! What a lovely girl Ruby is, and what fun adventures are ahead plus lots of mischief, especially when her gal pal Misty is around! :-)

So sad to hear about Gypsy and Ciara passing together. I'm so sorry for their loss.

And what a cutie Ruby is. I bet she will have some big paws to fill.

Misty and Ruby are adorable together. I bet they will be the best of friends. :)

We are so sorry to hear about Gypsy. There is nothing like a new furkid to heal broken hearts. Ruby is a doll!

Jeanne Pursell said...

We are sorry to hear about Gypsy having to cross the bridge. But, we are very happy to hear that a new little one has joined your crew! Ruby looks like such a cute little ball of fur and Ruby & Misty will have SO much fun playing and growing together! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Blessings to all!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

This has been a tough month in blogville. Stumpy and I lost our kuzzin/grandog Fenway,too.

I am sure Gypsy is smiling, over the bridge, to see her kids smiling, again

Marg said...

Wow, that really is sad that Gypsy had to do to the bridge too. But that Ruby is gorgeous. And Misty and Ruby are going to have such a good time together. Two good looking pups. You all have a great week end.

Millie and Walter said...

Ruby sure looks like a cutie. We can tell that Misty and Ruby will have lots more fun at play dates in the coming weeks. It looks like the grandbipeds are in love with the new pup too.

KB Bear said...

I'm so sorry about Gypsy. But I'm so happy that that sweet sweet puppy has made them all smile again. Both Misty and Ruby I like rays of sunshine in your family. I'm reading this on my phone and it won't let me watch the videos. I'll have to wait until I get home for that fun. Thanks for this happy post!

Oh my goodness, that was the cutest ever, those two little pups had so much fun! How wonderful! Dogs can bring us such joy.

Miss Ruby is adorable! How nice that things are a lot happier in your house now. Looks like you have some nicer weather than us. My yard is full of mud and dead leaves. Not that I mind. But the humans don't seem to like all that stuff when it gets on my feets!

Sue said...

Yeah, new puppies are the best things! She is super adorable and the kids mus be so excited. Just think, Misty, you're the big girl now and get to help teach Ruby how to be a good dog.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We think Ruby was just letting Misty know about the rules in her house. We came running when we heard her! What a gorgeous pup. she has obviously started filling the vacancy in their hearts. We hope there will be many visits!

Murphy said...

We can see Miss Ruby is helping to heal some hearts!

Your Pals,

We're so sorry to hear about Gypsy. Our hearts and purrs are with all of you. Ruby is a cutie pie! It'll be fun for her and Misty to grow up together and we can watch from afar with no puppies in our house! :)
