There's only one thing that can help ease the pain of waiting for your adopted baby - a baby. My big girl Alina would be mortified to hear that I might possibly think of her as a baby, so I had to get creative.
Fortunately, I have a house full of babies thanks to Lil' Paws Maltese rescue http://www.lilpaws-malteserescue.org/, an organization that I have become involved with lately. My favorite is Boo, our 12 year old little Chihauhua/Poodle mix. She's only 5 pounds and loves to have her tummy rubbed. She will just sleep in my arms all day long. Definitely the baby fix I needed to keep my sanity. We also permanently adopted Maybelle and Junebug, twins who are a mix of Shi Tzu and some sort of Terrier. Must've been a Jack Russell Terrier because these girls can jump 4 feet vertically. They remind me of Tigger. Thanks Lil' Paws.
