Cracklin' Rosie

I haven't been able to post for awhile and am happy to be able to do so this morning as I couldn't wait to share the good news with all of you.

Our daughter bought a surprise gift for her youngest daughter, Caroline, who this past summer was crushed when their twelve year old Golden Retriever, Jack, died of cancer.  She asked for a blue picture frame for Christmas.  'It has to be blue, Mom, because it's for Jack's picture and he was a boy'. 

I wish I convey to you in words the expression on Caroline's face when she opened a box and out peeked the beautiful, black button eyes, of a female Havernese who Caroline promptly named 'Rosie'.  Havernese dogs were originally bred in Havana, Cuba as circus dogs.  They are small, agile dogs with a personality as large as an elephant. 

Rosie jumps, runs, throws her toys in the air, hides under the chair where no one can reach her when she's naughty, curls up in your lap and falls alseep faster than you can wink, and loves to kiss!  The breed doesn't 'yip' a lot like some other small dogs but it's hard to gauge as Rosie was the runt of the litter but you should see her now.  One of my fellow blogger friends says they resemble the Bichon Frish.

Rosie has given great joy to all of us this Christmas and I just had to share it with you. 

I hope your holidays were happy and healthy.  What gave you the most joy this Christmas.  Drop by and let us know.  Cheers, Hank.
