Meet Princess Leia

We are still grieving over Molly and every single night is a challenge. Chase has cried himself to sleep more than once in the recent weeks wishing she was with him. Last week we ran into a friend that had also recently lost a bulldog baby. She was shocked and saddened to hear of Molly and told us of a friend of hers that had a friend who had bulldog puppies for sale. So to keep up, a friend of a friend of a friend... literally. We went to visit the puppies on Saturday and although we had gone with the intention of picking the runt after looking at pictures, we got there and this little girl stole our hearts:

She has cherry eye which is common in this breed and will be fixed when she is spayed. She is five months old, but still a total baby. She was pretty timid at first, but is quickly coming out of her shell. She is a sweetie and everyone loves her. Yoda just wants her to play and tonight she is getting closer to doing just that.

Her name is Princess Leia (to go with Yoda of course) and it truly fits because she has two brindle ears that look like buns. We still miss our Molly and wish she were with us, but I have a feeling that Leia is going to fit right in!

****I am grateful for
1) Molly and every single moment we had with her
2) Yoda, he cracks me up
3) Princess Leia, maybe she will help us heal
4) bulldog wrinkles, so cute
5) smiles from Chase and Emery when they play with Yoda and Leia
