Meet Toffee Roger Wencl

2 May

ToffeeandAnnaMeet the newest member of our family — Toffee Roger Wencl!  He became an official  Wencl this past Sunday and the transition thus far has been a smooth one both for Toffee and for us!

Toffee loves to play and he loves to walk — and he’s a wonderful leash walker — always by my side and never pulling or bounding ahead — something the Legendary Murphy ALWAYS did whenever we attempted to take him on a walk!

As I sit at my computer, Toffee is never far away — three dog toys lay scattered on the floor nearby and he hovers on either side of me waiting for a scratch, a pet, or just an affirmation of what a good boy he is.

Night times are seamless as Roger goes to bed, Toffee kennels up without a peep.  Each morning he waits silently, but eagerly, for the day to begin.  Sometimes I wonder if he ever sleeps!

The most astounding piece of this new puzzle, however, are the resounding signs from above that Toffee was meant for us — picked especially for us by Elizabeth & Murphy.  Toffee’s foster Mom was named Beth; and the lady who did our final interview and deemed us to be a good adoptive home  was named Liz.  Liz-Beth!  Toffee made his first visit to our home on the 20th of the month — Liz died on the 20th; and we received confirmation that Toffee was ours on the 21st — exactly one month to the day that Murphy died.

Our family will be forever connected no matter where we are!  Love is always in the air!

    Thank you Kim, great story. Love those “divine coincidences”. I actually had a rare but lovely dream about Ivy last night. It was her 10th BD and she was wearing a pretty dress and had her hair up. She was very happy, smiling and sparkling with excitement. She was gone before her 10th BD. It’s her birth month, I will be looking for more signs. Date: Thu, 2 May 2013 13:36:47 +0000 To:

    Hi Kim,
    What wonderful coincidences……… Toffee seems to be really a gem…… a wonderful leash walker….wow !! I had a German Shepherd, 3 Bernese Mountain Dogs and a Tibet Apso – all very special dogs and non of them very obedient. Must be because I myself HATE to be obedient…. 😉
    Bright blessings,
