As most of you know, our beloved Jilli passed away (an untimely death) three months ago. The loss has been nearly unbearable given how sudden and unpredictable that it was. Losing Jill was the ultimate sucker punch: Never saw it coming. Knocked both of us down and out.

I've been busy in the Valley. Very busy. The wife has had to endure an empty house that was suddenly quiet and without "spirit". Running throughout the house, always playing, always demanding, alwaying thinking she was human, Jill was one of our children. The wife said that life without our Jill was not the same and much too quiet.

I arrive home from the Valley on Friday afternoon to find this little waif of a puppy.

Huge surprise.

Me: Does she have a name?

Wife: No.

Me: It has to be Zinnia - like the flower. Zinnia is our little flower of a dog who will blossom into a well trained dog.

Wife: Zinnia it is.

Me: But for short, Zinni.

Zinni is not used to men in her life. She is definitely not sure what to make of me.

When we're alone Zinni cries.

But then, most women cry when they're alone with me. What's up with that?

Add one more crying female to the list.

Zinni is going to have to Pomeranian up!
