I am happy to say that we are moving into a 6,000 sq. ft. home at the end of the month. It has a huge back yard which is fully fenced and has lots of shade trees for the puppies to play in. It was my parents home, but they have moved on to an assisted living facility -- and I am just so excited that soon I will be able to just open the back door and the puppies can romp and play to their hearts content. I didn't think that the two of us really needed such a huge house, but my parents made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Just wanted to share my good fortune with you all.
