Darwin loves cuddling with his mommy & daddy. He loves swimming and playing at the dog park with all his friends.

Darwin is weary of new people at first. He also hates it when mommy and daddy go on a car ride without him.

Favorite Toy:
He loves anything he can chew on. Only the most durable chewies will do. He also loves his tennis balls and frisbee.

Favorite Food:
He loves his dry food with Natural Balance Food Roll mixed in. He also loves chomping on ice cubes.

Favorite Walk:
Darwin loves walking around the neighborhood but new neighbors make him nervous.

Best Tricks:
Darwin loves giving high fives and "searching for the kitties".

Arrival Story:
I received Darwin as a Valentine's gift from my husband. He told me we were going to get a puppy and we looked at local rescue shelters online. We were looking for a husky mix but found Darwin and knew from that moment he was ours. We drove an hour to meet with the foster family and he hasn't left our side since.

We're not sure what mix he's got thrown in there. He's our Heinz 57. We were told he is an Anatolian Shepherd mix, but he grew up to be the cutest mini-golden. He looks just like a golden retriever with crooked basset legs.

Darwin's Diary

Give a Penny, Save a Penny...

I scared my mommy and daddy this weekend. I decided it'd be funny to chew on a penny I found on the floor. Mommy saw me chewing on the penny and came to get it out of my mouth. I didn't want her to take it from me so I swallowed it.

My mommy looked worried and was on the phone with Dr. Kathy, my favorite doctor, talking about foreign bodies and zinc toxicity (pennies aren't made with copper anymore). Then she put a bowl of water on the floor and I started drinking it. Boy, was it yucky! That wasn't water. It made my tummy feel funny and filled my mouth with foam. I started throwing up all my lunch.

Then she took me to the vet the next morning where they put me on a cold table and took a picture of my belly. Dr. Kathy said that she didn't see the penny and that I probably already pooped it out. My mommy looked relieved.

She told me on the way home that I learned how to turn a penny into 90$ overnight. Daddy started calling me piggy bank.
