Default Emotional Rollercoaster

The last few days have been an absolute emotional rollercoaster. It started with lots of tears and just feeling my heart ripped out of my chest. Losing Gibbs so unexpectedly completely rocked my world.

The last few weeks Chris and I had been looking for a Redbone Coonhound Lab mix puppy to add to our family. We wanted one to relieve some of Scarlett puppy power from Gibbs. We were told that they were adopted, they didn't adopt out of state, to not being able to find the right fit. We put out word everywhere that we were looking.

As I was hugging my pups extra hard Chris's phone rang. A rescue in MD received Redbone Coonhound pups Sat/Sun from an AL high kill shelter. They had two females and wanted us to come look at. The confusion began what do we do Scarlett needs a friend but my heart hurts too bad. Why now after we were searching for weeks?

Well we decided to go look this evening. A door that had been shut was finally open and we didn't want to miss out. We took Scarlett and would leave it up to her if she wanted a sister. Scarlett fell head over heels for a little 8 week old munchkin. She is sweet and cute and mimics Scar. What do I do? I feel like I am cheating on Gibbs can I mourn and lover her like she deserves?

Then the discussion I had with my mom this morning came back on how God works in mysterious ways, another friend told me to go look as Sadie and Gibbs probably planned this from above to help heal my heart. I look at Scarlett and her big brown eyes were pleading Please Mom. This baby needs us. So while we all mourn as no one will ever replace Gibbs he is irreplaceable I have opened a new place in my heart for a little munchkin that needs a loving home some TLC and a big sister. Meet Rosie a sweet very young Redbone Coonhound pup

What an absolute sweetheart!!!

I am so sorry for your pain, there is nothing to do for that but time. But what a little love you have now, who will help you heal.

I'm so glad you found each other. <3

Oh Christie, I am so sorry to hear that you have lost Gibbs. My heart is breaking for you.
Rosie will help, she will make you smile on the days you feel it will be impossible to ever smile again. Puppies make the best grief counsellors. xxxx

I seem to cry and laugh at the same time. I miss my Gibbers terribly but seeing Scarlett try to teach Rosie how to do things cracks me up.

Oh and Stella Rosie would be a pup after your heart she went nuts trying to eat BG & Sonny's raw last night

I believe that God and Gibbs sent you little Rosie. You and Scarlett needed her. Loving your new girl does not mean you don't love and miss Gibbs. your heart is big enough to love them all. I am so sorry for your loss but so happy for your sweet new girl.

So sorry about Gibbs. A sudden death is sometimes harder to deal with, than one that you know is coming (cancer, heart disease)

Glad that Stella has a 'sister' now. She'll teach the new pup house rules, ie, housetraining her. (hopefully)

Aw Christie, so sorry about Gibbs. That Coon pup looks huge for 8 weeks. Lol So sweet. Nothing better than puppy breath and I know Gibbs is smiling down on the new addition.
