New addition to the family

| | Comments (4)

Her name is "Tori." Much like Maureen had indicated and what I read in some authoritative puppy books, I was looking for a simple two syllable name. The dog will never identify with it like we humans might; it will simply form a sound she will grow comfortable with and respond to.

She is named for Sr. Maria Giuseppa Pitorri, a close friend of St. Gaspar's. She is the niece of Bp. Francesco Albertini who was St. Gaspar's spiritual director. St. Gaspar served as her spiritual director, and she later gave a deposition at his canonization process.

I wore her out today. It is a bit traumatic for an eight-week-old puppy to be separated from Mom, make a two-hour drive and then get introduced to a new house. The Parish team threw a little welcome home party for her. Sr. Mary Joseph, OP and my sister Kathy came over later to meet her. I hope she sleeps well tonight.

She was too cute tonight and soooo tired from her long day. Welcome to the family Tori!

welcome, Tori!

who knows how a dog understands her name!

I want one...

Adorable. Absolutely adorable.

And as I said in Chicago, you'll get to explain something about St. Gaspar's life every time someone asks her name...
