I'm bring home Onyx!
« on: August 25, 2005, 01:40:13 pm »
A few weeks ago, a lovely woman named lisa posted about a 7 month old Newfie that she was looking for a home for. (see topic here: http://www.bigpawsonly.com/index.php/topic,2309.0.html)

After emailing back and forth for a bit, Lisa is allowing my husband and I to adopt him into our family!!!!

Josh and I leave Saturday for Redding, CA to meet up with Lisa, Onyx and his brother Winston. (along for the ride!) I'm dancing in my seat, I'm so excited.

I thought I would post a pic or two of the handsome boy that Lisa sent to me.

I will probably inudate everone with pics for the next couple of weeks as Onyx becomes familiar with my boy-os, and vice versa.

Without further ado....Onyx
Leah and the Boy-os

Zeus (Heinz 57)
Onyx (Newfoundland)

OMG! Congratulation s on the new addition. Onyx....great  name.

Lisa lives here by me in Fresno and I have chatted with her too. We are supposed to get together to hang out with the doggies I knew I should have gone out there sooner. Maybe you should just make the trek to Fresno and see all of us in person!  :D

Oh yeah, a newfie!  Onyx is beautiful and so lucky to come and live with you!  Of course we want to see all your photos.  It must be so hard to wait for Saturday...  ;D

Jamie - *lol* I told hubby about your idea. I got the one-eyebrow-arch. I'm just glad and lucky enough that he was able to get Monday off so that if we need to take a slower trip to get him home, we have the time to waste.

Thanks to everyone, yes, we are very excited! Josh and I have called each other twice already today with further things we'll want to take with us. Onyx's belly doesn't do so hot in cars yet, (hence us providing for plenty of time if it's needed.) so we've got a blanket to lay in the back of the SUV, a bunch of towels, bottled water and a small water bowl. Trash bags for rest stop clean-ups and storage of messed up towels. (should they become necessary) Oh, and some peppermint oil to put on his feet. (supposed to settle the tummy, and it smeels fabulous, so there's a plus!)

We've already made reservations at the La Quinta Inn in Redding (dog-friendly!!) for Saturday night. That's where we'll be meeting up at.

I saw all the posts today about new puppies, and I know that Jenn is picking up Kizmet the same day, so I just had to share!

Thank you Lisa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
