That's a really cool story! I didn't know all the history behind your getting him. He really was meant to be with you!

Happy kinda-gotcha day!

I feel incredibly lucky to have him, despite of or maybe because of what a long road it was to get him.

If anybody wants more tears...

Karissa has always referred to Nico, his brother and their sisters as the Miracle Puppies. Out of a litter of 11, 4 of them lived, despite a 5% chance given to them by the vet. (Momma was severely emaciated and malnourished when she gave birth. She had been pulled off the streets after being dumped.) They had to be tube fed and get sub-q fluids. Nico was the smallest pup of the 4 that lived, behind both of his sisters, he had the least chance of all of them of living. As a wee puppy he was half the size of his sister Lacey, who is now the smallest and matured at a whopping 36 pounds. Nico now tops in at 51ish pounds and the only real lingering effects of his rough start is an extremely sensitive stomach.

I do think there is a definitely a reason that they are the miracle puppies, not only did they beat the odds, but they all seem to be very lucky. All of them have found homes where they fit so perfectly and have bonded so tightly that it's incredible.

<3 That is such a cool story. It must have been torturous and heartbreaking the whole way. So glad it was a happy ending!
