Meribel came along at just the right time too, as Jess & Don needed a little "therapy dog" to help them get through the loss of German Shepherd Pepper who recently died of cancer. A funny, cheerful, extra-cute puppy is definitely good for the soul! The elderly Shepherd Simmie really like Meribel too, so it's made things easier for her as well.
Things are still on for Sparkle to go up to Canada for awhile. She goes in for a rabies shot today, and we'll meet up with the Pellas tomorrow in Duluth. Looks as if the weather is cooperating - fingers crossed.
