Estee is now in Dallas with Mom

Saturday the 28th, Estee got on American Airlines and flew to Dallas, where Daniel and his family picked her up, took her to their business, The Grooming Table, washed and buffed her and took her to Mom’s home where she had a big reception party with champagne and all the trimmings. What a start to a beautiful friendship.

Estee is going to my Mom in Texas

Last January while my Mom was in the hospital recovering from a broken hip and a heart attack that required the implantation of a defibrillator, her Bichon of 15 years, Marseilles passed away. She has been alone since that time, and the other day she called, needing a companion, but not a puppy. Those of you who know Estee, know how perfect she is to take gentle, loving care of Mom. Being 8 years old, she is mellow and mature and a great snuggler. There are plenty of other dogs in the neighborhood for her to visit and play with, and Estee will be spoiled just like Mom in her golden years.

We hope all of you wish her a safe journey.
