The last couple of weeks have been super busy ones at work. I am actually filling in for a vacated position during a very stressful period. I am so blessed by a great team who surprised me Friday with a gift certificate for an hour long massage as a thank you. I enjoyed that luxury this afternoon. OMG. Then the hub took me to a nice dinner. I am so relaxed tonight.

My former brother in law passed away on Monday, leaving behind his beloved dog. The arrangements that BIL thought were in place for his dog fell through after he died, so I am happily taking the dog, a black lab. DD2 went to pick him up (11 hours each way this weekend) and he will be 'home' tomorrow.

The hub is home from Alaska for three weeks. This will be helpful in transitioning our new lab into the family. I didn't count on a new inside dog, but given the circumstances, will make it work.

    How nice of you to take in the dog. Having a good home to go to will make it much less traumatic for him. Sorry for your loss.

    That is so nice of you to take the dog. I worry what will happen to my girls when i pass (if dh is gone too) I have made arrangements for my groomer to adopt them, because they love her.

    I'm sorry for your loss, although also happy for your gain. Shotgun sounds like a great addition.
