Last year I wrote of the sad day when my grandson's old dog was put down to to the problems that come with aging in the autumn of life. Now as spring finally arrives in the north country, new life arrives, and a sign is the arrival of my grandson's new puppy, Cowboy. This beautiful Springer Spainel waddled from his litter mates and dropped right into CJs lap when they visited the breeder. And it appears that this dog plans to stick near his new boy, and they are now inseperable. I can't wait to meet this new family member when I return to Minnesota....but hate to leave here when the weather is so nice, and is remaining so cool up there. But there is nothing like a cute, fat bellied pup to cuddle!!!!!
