I am happy to announce to the world that after 1) completing the online application, 2) succeeding in the phone screening process, and 3) surviving the house visit we have been approved to adopt (purchase!) our next French bulldog. She's a 5-month old beauty. We are excited! She lives in Oklahoma and right now we're planning to drive up on Wednesday before Thanksgiving to get her.
Like I said before, there is nothing that can replace the empty spot in my heart that was created after the death of Martha Fauker; however, getting this dog has created a new spot in my heart.
Life is a beautiful thing.
