Please Meet Greta!

First I want to say THANK YOU, to all my blogging friends for your love and support over the last couple of weeks. Losing my cousin and Heidi within 3 days was traumatic.

So let us move on to a new chapter in our lives!

Please meet Greta!

That is what we have named her. 2 days after we lost Heidi, my friend was at the dentist office and the dental hygienist asked if there was anyone she knew who might want a German Shepard?
I had alot of questions.
was it a girl?
how old was she?
was she housebroken?
was she ok around cats?
The answer was yes to everything.
She was found wandering on a road and a kind family with 3 kids and 2 dogs took her in, but had been looking for a home for her.
We meet them today, Mr., my neighbor and dog sitter went to a park.
It was love at first sight.....she walked up to Mr and planted a wet kiss right on his face. That was at 3:30, by 4pm Mr. had her packed up in the Aspen ready to go home.

She has met all the neighbors, my brother came over.....they all agree, she is a keeper!

I am just grateful that we were so lucky, because my heart was broken when I lost my Heidi girl, but I think it is healing..........

Ann, I'm sooooo happy for you and your family.
Our 7th dog is a beautiful German Shepherd too. They truly are magnificent. I never really had a BIG dog, but I wouldn't trade him for the world.
Happy days for you my friend.
Welcome to your forever home Greta.
Love Claudie

Greta is wonderful. I love shepherds and have had 2 in my life. Duke and Max.
You are going to love having her around. They are super smart and well behaved and they love so much!
I have found that whenever God takes one away, he has another one already picked out for us.
Hugs- Tete

Awww, Greta is so cute!!! I'm so glad she has found a new home with you.
My niece had a female shepherd for years and she was the sweetest dog ever!! She was so good with the kids.

Greta is beautiful and it sounds like it was a match made in heaven, as they say. I'm happy for all of you!!!

What a beautiful girl! I think it was a miracle that she came into your life when she did. I hope she can mend your heart after losing your dear Heidi. When I lost my first cocker spaniel unexpectedly to cancer 8 years ago, I was devastated. 3 weeks later, Hubby surprised me with Emily, another adorable little cocker, who was 8 weeks old at the time. She was a lifesaver! Praying that God will heal your hurts.
