As I told you... a little Shih Tzu puppy 'miraculously' appeared at our gate within hours of our Coco being stolen. I think it's time for you to meet her!
After 4 days without a name and being called 'puppy' and 'baby', we have decided to name her LuLu. She's incredibly sweet (as all shih tzu's are), but completely unhousebroken. This leaves me in a difficult position because I already have my ticket to Canada for a week from today. Peter will be here in Tirana until the end of the month but he's working of course, so I will have to see if our lovely Albanian dogsitting family would be willing to take her for a month and to try helping with the training. I pray they won't mind.
My feelings are quite torn in two by having her. She isn't our Coco, but she is so charming. I'm not sure it's the normal thing to do-- getting a new puppy as soon as your dog has disappeared, but LuLu seems to have been sent to us as a little angel. Holding her this week and being able to talk to her has helped me deal with the heartache and pain of not knowing where Coco is.
