Finding Home – The Heywang Family add a pup named Cooper
Do you ever feel like you don’t have enough time? That you are too busy? Too overwhelmed by all the stuff going on in your life?
Well, meet the Heywang Family. They are a family of six – Mom, Dad, two brothers and two sisters, all ages 9 and under. Oh, and they also have rabbits, chickens, cats, another dog and a hedgehog. I’m sure I’m forgetting a creature or two.
The easy going way they all have with each other makes it seem completely natural to have so many people and pets in one place. It’s a perfect, happy kind of chaos that makes me wonder why MY house, with only two kids and one dog, seems so nuts.
It’s been several months since their beloved older dog passed away, and ever since they’ve felt the loss. Last Friday, after taking their time to find the perfect new puppy, they spotted Cooper at the Humane Society of Broward County.
On Saturday morning when I arrived, it was soggy , gloomy kind of morning. But everyone was up and excited to play with Cooper and pass him around for snuggles.
I’ll be back to see them in about a month or so to visit again and see how Cooper has grown.
