Felicia the Springer Spaniel that made Greatgrandma smile again

My parents are in their 90's, and can no longer have a dog. We moved next door to them with our cocker spaniel named Max. Soon after, Max died. I was devastated, and said I would never have another dog, as I did not want to go through that again.

About that same time, my older brother died, and a few months later, his oldest son was killed in an accident. My parents grew more and more depressed. A friend told me her dad had 2 springers with pups-20 altogether. We decided to take Mom and Dad there to see the pups, even tho they could not get one.

While we were there, I noticed how happy they both were with the pups. I looked at my husband, and he was smiling. I could feel great happiness in me, as well. My 65th birthday was coming soon, and I asked for one of the pups for my present.

Since this pup had turned everyone's frowns upside down, I wanted to name her Happy or something that meant that. When I looked at names and their meanings, I fount that the name Felicia means happy in Spanish.

The name fits her so well. She continues to make us feel 'happy' every day. She is almost 10 months old now, and if I don't take her over to visit the grandparents for a few days, they want to know where she is.

She is such a source of joy, that I can't imagine giving her any name besides Felicia!
