Ripley---- As in Believe it or Not.....

The conversation went something like this--
"Mom, it's the only way to stop crying...."

"Chelsey-- Dad said just look at the pup..."

"Mom, She said take it or leave it....so I took it...."

So she is standing on the front steps with this....


So filling the huge hole in my heart is Mr. Ripley---
Joining  our family.....


He's going to be a big boy.... He's a Lab Mix... And he loves Bruno.  He has funny qwerks like Ransom had.. Sometimes Don & I just look at each other....I think he would have liked him....
Life goes on... When I get sad about Ransom I just tuck it away...and squeeze Ripley.... Time heals all wounds....

Have a good weekend.....

Wishing you and Mr Ripley so much happiness . I was so sorry to read the news about Ransom. We have been through the same heartbreak. Ransom was such a wonderful companion for you.

I'm so happy you have your new little pup. I'm still looking for my little friend:)

He certainly is a handsome boy! New pets never take the place of departed pets. They create their own place. I'm sure Ripley will soon have a spot of his very own in your heart.

Sue said...

You'll never forget Ransom and you have lots of wonderful memories of him. And now Mr Ripley will help to ease some of the pain of losing him. Soooo cute.
