    What a blessing to be able to get her back. She's uber cute!

    And we also want wee boys face pics too when you tell them

    Thanks everyone! bcody, that's the photo you used in the ad for her when I first saw it online.

    And bonus: It just so happens (seems to be a running theme here: "It just so happens...") that Wednesday, late morning, the vet is scheduled to come do her teeth and her shots. It will be right after our visit, so I can stay and watch to see how she does, and then ask the doc any questions I may have about her medical history over the past few years.

    I took the boys to visit Fly this morning. No official decision yet--I'm being good and controlling the impulse to pressure hubby--but again, things are looking good. Believe me, I'm ready to say YES, but I need to respect hubby's need to ease into decisions like this rather than pressure him. 14 years together, I've finally learned.

    But, interestingly, hubby's surprised me in that he's talking to our eldest (Boy 1.0) about it--this morning before we left, it was "Do you remember Firefly?" Eldest, as if scripted but I promise unprompted: "Yeah, I do. I wish she was still ours." Hubby then talked with eldest a little more about it, digging gently for info and what Boy 1.0 thinks.

    I have just a few pics for now. First of all, here we are all reunited after 3 1/2 years. Boy 2.0 was fascinating to her--she watched him everywhere he went. (Boy 2.0: "Ooh, dirt!")

    Boy 2.0 brushing Firefly--he really wanted to when he saw how interested brother was. And what was GREAT was how little Fly is--2.0 can actually reach and brush all over her, whereas on my new boy, he can basically reach knees and hocks. You know, all the dangerous places. AND he can walk all around her, and be so very hands-on. Nice.

    Boy 1.0 brushing Fly. Geez, can you tell what his favorite color is? Heh. He loved brushing her...only thing is, he wanted to ride her. Um...no.

    Boy 2.0 brushing her neck. Girl was so relaxed, she actually started dozing in the cross-ties!

    Now, there were also chickens on the property, which the boys found very interesting and exciting (Program director, after I apprehensively asked if this was okay: "Oh, it's fine; they're used to much worse,"), and as a child-friendly center, there was also a playground and a room full of toys. so there was a LOT for my boys to entertain themselves with. When I asked on the drive home what Boy 1.0 liked best about the visit, again as if scripted he said, "Brushing Firefly and petting Firefly, and leading her around, and giving her carrots." Then, a few seconds later: "Oh, and the drive home." Me: "The drive home??" Boy: "Yeah, because of all the cool construction vehicles." ...There was some major construction right by the freeway on-ramp, so there you go. But WHOO HOO all things Firefly were first on his list!

    I know you all are dying for me to make THE decision, but I'm being good...and being good means that decision becomes more likely and more likely accepted, if that makes sense.

    I'll keep you updated...of course!

    It hardly seems like it could be better. Gazing into a crystal ball... I see a trailer trip in your future.

    Please cross my palm with silver.
