After the passing of Flame,
there was a quietness and emptiness in our house that was
deafening. After 4 months we decided we were ready for a new
dog. One evening Cyn talked about getting another dog. That
night, Mark was on a conference call for work at midnight.
During the call, Mark went onto Craig's List. This was only the
second Mark has ever visited this on-line marketplace. He found
a Golden Retriever being offered for free to a good home. He
sent an e-mail asking for more information.
next morning Cyn, un-knowing of the evening e-mail, received a
phone call asking if we would like to see Cinnamon that evening.
Needless to say Cyn was dumbfounded. She called Mark, Mark drove
to take a look at this small, rather crazy golden retriever. She
was not quite 2 years old. She was in a family with 3 kids, with
little time to train the dog. That weekend Mark & Cyn went back
to visit the dog. We decided that we would take her.
then she has made a great transition to our home. We have gotten
her through 2 sets of obedience classes to date. Cyn calls her
Cinnamon Pie, Mark calls her Cinna-monster. She has calmed down
considerably since taking her in. She is a wonderful dog to
have, and would not trade her in for anything in the world!
