Spike died a year ago today. He had a pretty good life; he was well loved. His death was peaceful and calm. We were devastated by the loss and still miss Spike. He was awesome.
But today is also a good anniversary. It's been eight months since Lola joined us. Lola is loving and playful. Unfortunately, she's still fearful and timid, but she's becoming more comfortable with neighbors, family and friends.
I ran into an old friend at the dog park the other day. She had also lost the dog she had when we first met and rescued a dog. She heard that it may take two years for a rescue dog to fully adjust to a new home.
We'll be waiting.
