How Do you Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Nearly three years after the loss of my beloved Jack-Dog, we have decided to bring a new pup into our home. Meet Maria, so named by my Sound of Music obsessed daughter. She is a lab-hound mix and is about 4 months old. She's just as sweet as sweet can be. She had been at Macon County Animal Control for three weeks, and I saw her on their "Last Chance Homeless Pet Adoptions" Facebook Page. I'm so glad we went in. I wanted a dog that was a snuggler and a lover, and Maria has not stopped snuggling us since she came home. I know that she is a puppy and will certainly wake up, so we are looking forward to long hikes and trips to the dog park. This is the perfect time of year for us to adopt, as we plan to be home through the holidays, and we will have lots of company for socializing. 

Ain't she cute? 


  1. She's beautiful!! Congratulations to you, your family, and little Maria. Adoptingis such a wonderful, beautiful thing. :) Enjoy!!!

  2. She looks like a certain mutt I know! I'm sure she is loving her new home!

  3. She is a cutie for certain!! How has she been adapting to her new home over the past several months? My family and I adopted our four-legged family member from the shelter about 2 years ago, and what a great addition he has been.


Thanks for stopping at Farmhouse Garden! I love to hear from you...
