Welcome Roscoe B Coltrain Esteves

As some of you may remember, we have lost two of our three dogs this year. It has been heartbreaking for us. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do but Brie has been so clingy and lonely all alone, she was never an only dog. I prayed that God would find the right dog for us. Last Tuesday my groomer called me, I told her to keep her eyes open for anyone who might be looking to re-home a little dog. She asked if I was still looking for a dog. I said yes. She told me that a customer of hers is a priest in Hartford who loves dogs and a rescue had been brought to him. He already has two dogs and he was looking regretfully for a new home for the dog. I said this sounded perfect since I spent 18 years as the secretary of a priest and one is one of my closest friends. She sent me a picture, Al and I fell in love. We went to meet the dog and that just sealed the deal. We picked him up Sunday night when we got back from Vermont and brought him home. I was not sure how he and Brie would get on. Well it wasn't love at first sight but they both slept on my bed last night and ate in bowls side by side this morning. I had the two granddogs today and he loved them and they loved him. Jack is crazy about him already and Alex came over to meet him last night and Brandon this morning. Al came up with the name Biscuit but when I saw him Roscoe seemed to fit better. Alex said Roscoe P Coltrain, the sheriff on Duke's of Hazzard I agreed to Roscoe B (Biscuit), He is just the sweetest dog. So now at least, we have 2 dogs, life seems more normal.

How wonderful is that. I'm sure he'll never supplant your lost dogs but I'm sure you have enough love for this one too.

Thank you so much, I was very worried about how Brie would react but so far though she has let him know she is the boss, they seem to be tolerating each other.

@BelleStarr It will take a bit of time, but it sounds pretty good so far. Brie is the boss. lol. I think it so cute that they slept on the bed and ate side by side.

I'm glad I read your post all the way through. Immediately after reading your title, I was going to chastise you for getting Roscoe P. Coltrain's name wrong! haha But it all makes sense now. By the way, Roscoe was my favorite character on Dukes of Hazzard! Well...after Daisy Duke of course!

@BelleStarr Yes, but I was only a little kid, and I was still in love with her! haha

He is so adorable. Love the name you gave him. I wish I could get a puppy for Ally, she is trying to dig her way to my neighbors because they have one and she wants to join in the fun Princess is having with him. With 3 cats you'd think she'd be content, right?

Yeah, I think most dogs like having other dogs around @BelleStarr if I had the money I'd get a puppy too.
