Default a few days late

it has been four years now...unbelievable...four years since the big lug-head named Wilson became a part of our family. Still can't believe that this dog, who I really knew nothing about, fit in our family so readily. It hasn't been without hiccups, mind you--getting to figure out his quirks and all...but he is beyond a doubt one of the best dogs I have ever known..and he's mine. <3 I feel so fortunate to have seen this boys picture, and thankful for chazzer's (Elizabetty who posted his picture here, wcladymacbeth who "sprung" him from the shelter and transported him, plantemolloser who helped transport, and pam111 who housed him for a few days and transported him to meet us part way)as well as all the others who offered help and or cheered us on.... I cringe to think he was on the euth. list.

So, a few photos to share.
me? trouble? nooooo.....


nope...not at all...


just have a few words to say....


Baxter...play with me!


YIKES!


I get the message


ok..will be nice.


all in all...life is good.


<3

Happy late gotcha day! He is such an awesome dog and I'm so glad he found you!

Do you have the original picture you saw on the forum?? It would be so cool to see a before/after!

Wilson is one of the best stories on the forum. He really lucked out getting to go to you!

he actually looks pretty much the same (minus a few testicles...)

this was the picture I saw that made me want him.


this is wcladymcbeth when she got him from the shelter


this was his bath when he reached pam111


his first night here...introductions


and playtime with a new playmate!




old lady Trav telling him to leave her alone!


but he and Baxter hit it off.
