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.

If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I've had a number of blogs.  Literally for years they have been created through Blogger and hosted on my personal website.  This spring, Blogger decided that they wouldn't allow blogs to be hosted elsewhere anymore and my posting came to an abrupt stop.
 

I resented giving them my traffic and finally decided that since my website needed to be redone anyway, I would look for a native way to host a blog.  I now have that.
