Our last dog Margot passed in November. She was an angel and died of old age at 15. We think her spirit is in Lulu who was born around when she died.
We thought about waiting till we had baby news to decide about new dog, but we couldn't wait any longer. Lulu is the mellowest 12 week old we've ever met and she has Margot's knowing eyes. She is a bit brighter than Margot though, already going on wee-wee pads after 24 hours (Margot never got the wee-wee pad thing and loved to pee in the bed).
