Meet Nola: The Newest Addition to Our Family

fullsizeoutput_34bf.jpeg

It’s officially been a year and a half since we lost Jolie, our yellow lab.  We have had a hard time replacing her since.  She was so precious and such a great dog!

Also, being “empty nesters,”  it has been relaxing leaving town without worrying about who will watch her and take care of her.

But, lately, Rourke has been traveling extensively, and I come home to a very empty house.  I needed a companion besides my outdoor kitties, Ying and Yang.  I wanted a snuggle companion to keep me company.

We debated getting another lab, but I really was not looking forward to vacuuming EVERY SINGLE DAY!!  We went down the labradoodle path, and Rourke was just not digging the mixed breeds.

So, when we went to Thibodaux for my reunion, we stayed with my bestie with a Westie!

We fell in love.

When we got home, Rourke said, I could do a Westie.  I went for the gold, and asked, “Can we do two?”

Well, I was pushing my luck and had to stick to UNO!

So, I called the same breeder of my bestie and put a deposit down (to hold her) on a girl, NOLA!!!  (Named after one of our favorite places.).

*Still looking for a Drew Brees jersey in her size FYI!

We welcome Nola!!fullsizeoutput_34bdIMG_0708.JPG
