Arrival Story: We have been wanting to get Manny a furever brother for a while, but didn't know if we wanted a rescue, shelter, or breed dog. Well, I came across Salty on Petfinder at a semi-local rescue and he just looked like a great fit. We took Manny to meet him and they became the best of friends and now they love each other so much! Salty is a timid doggie and very cautious, but we are taking him out and letting him experience more things and soon he will know that we are is furever hom!!!
Forums Motto: Just give me sec, I'll get used to you!
Manny was my first dog, I love him with all of my heart, but I never knew how much I could love a dog until we got Salty.
I never knew I would "sleep" on the floor in front a freezing storm door waiting for him to come home for 5 hours.
I never knew a silly kids movie like Bolt would bring me to a weepy mess because I love my dog so much and I dont what I would do if he was gone.
I never knew that I would bond so much with an animal that I feel like he literally is a piece of my heart.
I never knew how much this little 24 lb furball would change my life.
I grew up with cats, I actually still have my childhood cat who's 19 and still kicking, but dogs are so different from cats. When you can bring your pup with you to places, actually do things with them and learn things with them, you bond with them so much more.
Salty came to us broken a scared, for a while we didnt know if we could handle him, now we dont know if we could live without him. Even my DH was going to drive 3 hours at the break of dawn if he hadnt come home that night he jumped the fence when I was gone. He still has issues, but when I look down at this little guy cuddling with his legs kicked up in the air in the bed with me giving me kisses, I know I wouldnt be complete without him. Thank you Dogster pals for helping me deal with his issues and helping me teach him, and me, how to deal. Without some of you I dont think we would have my baby still.
You are my sunshine, my little mood changer, you are my baby. I love you so much I didnt know I could love an animal like this. Thank you for getting me through life and changing me the way you have. I love you.
