Todd and Everything is Just Fine!!

It was a whirlwind trip to Southwest Virginia but it could not have been a better one!  I really enjoyed meeting Lynn from Rocky Creek Scottie Adventures   who was just as I knew she would be, welcoming, kind, thoughtful and so easy to talk too--She has such a beautiful setting for her home and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her, meeting her husband and her pups too!  Of course the highlight and reason for my trip was to pick up our new addition, Todd.

Of course my heart melted when I saw him for the first time--He is bigger than I expected and just as precious as I knew he would be.

Eventually my visit with Lynn came to an end because it was time to get on the road and return to my neck of the woods.  Todd was as good as gold for the 6 hour drive.    
Speaking of Gold....Todd was a little overwhelmed yesterday at meeting all the Goldens for the first time.
That however has changed.  Today Todd is trying to get to know his new pack just a little bit better and is either following them around or....  
~Reggie & Todd~
laying around with them...
~Sam & Todd~
And really trying to make a friend out of Charlie who is, as expected, non too happy right now and is just trying to stay a few steps ahead. 
We are keeping him away from Rudi, who is mostly ignoring him, which is just fine--In fact as our first day together is coming to an end, I think everything is just fine!

  15. Kim, just when I thought the pictures couldn't get any cuter, you put in the rocking chair picture. We might need to negotiate a bit on that one!!

    I love seeing his short little legs going around after your big Goldens - and they are all so close in color. Todd couldn't be in a more wonderful home!!

  54. Oh my goodness Kim, look at those ears...what a precious sweetheart!
    I know it will take some time for everyone to get adjusted and to find a new 'normal' but it will happen as you know.
    I'm glad you had such a special time on your trip and Welcome Home!

  55. Hi Kim -
    I just found your blog through Rocky Creek - had to follow Todd and his new family :o) Your crew looks like they've welcomed him and I'm sure he'll be bossing everyone around in a couple of days - after all, he is a SCOTTIE!! Hope your Rudi is doing better - I've gone through the "not eating" part with one of mine in the past to no avail. She was just too sick to want to eat :o( It's frustrating to see them this way, though. Anyway, hope little Todd brings new joy to your home - we go through Lovettsville when we go to see our kids in Bristow, VA. Come visit me on my blog - quiltedscottie.blogspot.com -

  58. You are a very special person. I love that you rescue dogs. My heart goes out to Rudi and you! I found you through my friend's blog Joey and Kealani. I saw where you got one of Lynn's dogs. She is everything you said and more! I should know since I gradutated with her. Small world! Looking forward to reading updates about Todd and seeing his pictures.
