Zappa and Fiona at 4 months old
Some extra quality time with Zappa and Fiona is always a treat. Everything about them is extra special. Zappa and Fiona are the two puppies we kept from the litter and have been here since day one. They are the two 'good' kids. They are great walkers, calm and quiet in the car,and they will tolerate other dogs. They are well mannered, calm and secure. They are a perfect example of Brut and Silver’s best qualities. They are both a little smarter and a little wiser than the generation before. Not that they don’t each have their own set of quirks and behavior issues, but on an overall basis, they are the dogs with the even temperament and disposition.
I used to have such a hard time with the amount of contentment Zappa and Fiona had compared to the gratitude and energy Chance and Blaze had, slowly I am beginning to understand. The amount of love they have always been given is greater than what all of the dogs and my husband and I have ever had all put together. I know it is something I can not begin to fathom, having a full lifetime of love. It is almost unbelievable. And yet I am able to look into Zappa and Fiona's eyes everyday for the proof that such a love exist.
I think we did the right thing.
