All in the Family



We decided to adopt from a breeder in Plainfield, Connecticut, Ruthie Sinclair-Stephens of Heelmark Vizslas. She has been raising Vizslas for 40 years. The veterinarian at Massachusetts SPCA who helped us with putting Zoe, our 12 year Vizsla to sleep, met a couple in her her neighborhood while walking their 4 month old Vizsla. The owners told her about Heelmark Vizslas and how happy they were with the breeder. After I made a series of inquiries, Ruthie responded that she was expecting a first litter from her 3.5 year old. We had the opportunity to visit several times, the family of 5 Vizslas ...... mother, grandmother, great grandmother and father. The mother gave birth to 7 puppies on July 22nd, the day following my birthday. Over the next few weeks paid several more visits and played with the young puppies. To make a long story short ...... We picked up our little Vizsla puppy September 17th around the same time of day as when we put Zoe to sleep on May 17th. It was the 17th week since May 17th. Her eyes have turned yellowish brown from blue. She is adjusting well to being away from her siblings and extended family with lots of running, chewing on toys and us. She has adjusted to sleeping alone at night in her crate or in our beds. Outside she is so curious and picks up almost everything in her mouth. We decided to name our puppy, Rewa. The name Rewa is a Sanskritâ word meaning A New Beginning. It also stems from the Tibetan word which means, "Hope, wish..... In New-Zealand, the name Rewa means- slender. We have welcome Rewa into our lives and as a tribute to our departed "Zoe".

Wow, outstanding album. Total eye candy. Thanks. I'm sorry for your loss, I know it's hard, it took me years before I was ready but went in for other breeds (we had a GSD growing up and then I had a Rott for a shorter period of time). Celebrate life, not death. :) Wishing you many long, happy, fun filled years with Rewa.

This photo reminds me of the mommy dog saying "goodbye" to her baby and giving advice, but the Baby Rewa has got the last word and kiss for Mom!
