It's Official!

Sue came over Monday afternoon and we completed the adoption paperwork for Miss Wylla Stout.  It's official!  She is OURS!

Wylla was pretty exhausted from her surgery the evening before. She sat quietly and watched while we celebrated softly.

No gold medal - instead these sweet little tag - a gift from our dear friend Sarah.

Yep.  She's with Bean.  She's with us.  Wylla is ours forever.

And we couldn't possibly be any happier.

  36. I think for one of Wylla's earlier vet visits she had a tag on, and I remember my heart jumping in my throat because I thought you were going to tell us she was leaving... So I am thrilled that she has this new purple tag instead, and you, Craig and Bean as her forever family!!!
