This summer we had to swallow hard and say goodbye to our beautiful lab and family member, Chelby. He still adorns the bottom of my blog as my faithful follower and will continue to hold a loving spot in all of our hearts.
If you are a dog owner you know how quickly animals become part of your family and you understand how attached you become to a dog that is with you for close to 13 years. Chelby was adopted when he was a little older than 1 and he came with a cage that had obviously been his home for 12 hours of the day. It took us about 2 months to convince him that there was life beyond the cage!
So two months later we find ourselves adopting another young dog looking for a home...
Jackson is a 9 month old Golden Doodle and full of energy. His owners have not had any time for him so he has been basically spending 12 hours of his day alone in a house waiting for them to return home. Apparently a walk once a week was all they could manage so they made the decision to put him up for adoption.
So in the meantime we are taking small steps to help him understand that this is home.
