So sorry for your loss. But congratulations on your new addition. We lost one of our girls in March of 2008, then got Schatzi in July. We then, unexpectedly lost our other senior in August. That was a really tough year. I still miss our girls so much but Schatzi is such a sweet distration. They can never be replaced, but there is a void - when you reach your hand down, there needs to be a warm fuzzy head there to love! I noticed the name - I believe your new baby is from the same blood line as ours. I am not well versed in pedigrees but Ursus von Batu is 3 generations from our Schatzi von Batu. We got her from a very kind man who purchased her from a breeder and he could no longer care for her. We got her when she was 6 mo, she is now 2. We jokingly call her our rescue with a pedigree.
