Joy picked up Stanzi at Spirit Poodles in Minnesota on her way back from her yearly get-together with her college room-mate, Lynn Kernoble.
The girls partied while I took care of the homestead.
Well, not entirely unpleasant, since nephew Kenn came from Ramona, California to help me.
So lots of hiking while we awaited Joy and Stanzi, who arrived in Albuquerque on Saturday evening. We stayed the night there and returned to our casita on Sunday.
We’ve now had our Stanzi for three full days.
What a joy it is to have a dog in the house again.
She’s so small! I believe she’ll not be much bigger than Tessa.
It’s hard not to want to compare the two. But unfair to both.
So, we must watch ourselves. (I mean me watch myself. For it is so easy to forget.)
I guess we will have snow before I can get her out on a trail. But I’m eager for the day.
