Our Family Has Grown!

Last night I was looking through Petfinder.com and I came across this beautiful baby girl. We adopted a wire hair dachshund male over the summer, and he is the most awesome dog ever. We're always saying I need to find a girl wire hair, (Tater is a daddy's boy) but they're pretty uncommon to find in rescue so I doubted it would happen. (I don't buy dogs, ever) But there she was on the website, and located in a high-kill shelter too. It happened that today was hubby's day off, so when I got off work and showed him the picture, off we went. My hubby ROCKS!
She was in a town that is about an hour's drive North of us. We had a heck of a time finding the shelter, but we made it. Got there, and there was ANOTHER dachshund in the shelter! I could only get one, so of course I got my wire hair girl, but I contacted my rescue group and we're going to be getting the other girl if she doesn't get adopted by Friday, one of the group members will be adopting her. Yay! Two lives saved. Two hours of sleep today! Yikes! But it's so worth it. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have doctor's appointments right after work tomorrow AM, and then I have to work 7pm-7am tomorrow night. But I'm not complaining! It's more than worth it, and I'll get through it.
When I got her home I put her straight in the bath, she was incredibly filthy and covered with fleas. She seems to feel so much better now, and she is so happy and sweet. All she wants is to cuddle. I am totally in love!
