We are so happy to announce our newest family member! His name is Enin (pronounced N-N). Enin is an adorable boxer, shepherd mix puppy who has changed out lives forever. Like most things in life there was no plan to find Enin. Instead Enin found us.
I have wanted a dog for as long as I can remember, but without the full support of everyone in the family it was just not going to happen. Magically, the stars were aligned this month. I was on the Lucky Paws Rescue website and found a dog I thought would be perfect for our family: her name was Bay. She was found pregnant in a field in California where someone had left her. Somehow she was brought up to Oregon and gave brith to 9 puppies. Bay was described as being the perfect family dog. She was 1.5 years old and loved children, cats, other dogs, and basically everyone and everything.
Our family headed out to meet her and her pups were going to be there too. She was a wonderful dog. She was gentle with her pups and her pups were as well mannered as she was. One by one her pups were adopted. Three families (including our own) wanted to adopt Bay. After about 2 hours we were able to meet her and she was just as wonderful as she was described. All 3 families wanted her. The volunteer at Lucky Paws picked one of the applications at random and we were not the family that was picked. Sadness…..
The volunteer told us there were 3 puppies left in case we wanted to adopt one of them. My husband and I looked at one another as our 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter were well on their way to meet the puppies. Immediately they found a pup they liked, or rather they were being licked by a puppy that had chosen them. This is how we came to have Enin in our lives. And we couldn’t be happier.
So many times in life we are busy looking for happiness. If only we stopped looking and allowed it to find us.
