Dia eating the sunroom carpet.

Gen. 2:16-17  "And the Lord God commanded the man, 'You may freely eat of every tree in the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.'"
 

This is a picture of my new puppy, Dia.  She is an eight-week-old Chinook, and I got her two days ago.

Anne and Dia in the back yard

My best friend of 38 years, Celeste, came up from RI to pick up Dia with me.  She brought a small crate from one her small dogs, we put a blanket and a toy in it and set out.

Champlain/Dia being evaluated by a judge

At long last today I heard which pup would be mine.  It is one of the five females in the litter of nine and was previously named Champlain.  As I explained a couple of posts ago, her new name will be Dia and this is her picture as she was being evaluated by the breed judge.

New crate/den in the study

It's Tuesday before I pick up the puppy on Friday, and I still don't know which pup will be mine.  You can view the options here.  An e-mail from the breeder last week said that she would be matching pups to owners over the weekend, but I've still heard nothing.

Gatsby with a Teddy Bear after Ruckus died

The week before the pups were born, Gatsby was killed.  Maybe he was upset about the new puppy and committed suicide, but it seems that he got in a tangle with some stronger creature and lost.  I found his body down behind an empty house in the neighborhood, brought him home, and buried him in the back yard.  I was devastated.

Helo, the new pup's sire

My beloved dog, Ruckus, died of cancer in the summer of 2009.  I had gotten Ruckus from the daughter of our church secretary in Westford, Mass. who was going to college and couldn't take the dog.  Ruckus came to me with his own cat, Gatsby.  They were both four years old, both tawny colors.

Yucca plant

Genesis 1:31 "God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good."
 

This is the yucca plant in my back yard.  There is no reason that it should be there, let alone flowering nicely, because I tried my best to kill it.

Oil coated bird in Gulf of Mexico

Genesis 1:26  "Then God said, 'Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.'"

Genesis 9:16 "Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

Mother and Rob, June 2010

Finally, finally, finally I got up for a visit with Mother.  It has been months and months and I was a bit afraid that she would look much deteriorated from the last time I saw her.  You tend to notice such things more after a long absence, I find.
