Our Family Has Grown

The Breen Family has grown, and we’re excited and proud to introduce our new baby and Harvey’s big sister:

Rita Mae Breen

Rita is a 2 year old Jack Russel Terrier Mix rescue. She is adopted from the same organization as Harvey: Homeward Bound Dog rescue.  It was love at first sight, but when we first approached her, we were told another man had seen her and liked her and had called his wife to come see her. We decided not to spend time with her and met with several other dogs. However, we lucked out and the wife was smitten with another dog, so we  spent some time with her out of the cage and knew she was the right fit for our home and family. A quick run to Petsmart for more doggie supplies and to set up her first vet appointment and we were home and setting her up with food, water, bed and lots of love.

The settling in is going quite well, and we’re excited to have Rita with us. I think she’s pretty happy, too.

    This is MARVELLOUS! I’m as smitten as you, Jeffrey and Harvey are. Welcome to the fold, Rita Mae, you little beauty! Now it’s going to be a day of euphoria for me – and I haven’t even switched on for today’s Olympics yet (where we’re still chasing after our first medal)!

    That’s total perfection! I’m looking forward to more pics and stories. I think that Rita Mae will love her new life at Breen Acres.

      Harvey likes her. He can’t stop hoping her. He did pick her out. The only small dog he even interacted with.
