It seemed like such a void not to have a black dog inside so I brought Clara, Annabelle's daughter to the house. She stays in the puppy room with Tilly now. It is good to come home in the evening and have a black girl greet me. Clara looks so much like her mother that it's incredible. It makes her very happy to be inside also.
Clara has a lot of the similar traits as Anna also. She has a wonderful even temperament and is very kind. She is a bit more independent minded and doesn't seem to want to come as quickly when called. She likes to sniff and be a typical Labrador.
It does my heart good to see a black dog be in the house again.
