Arrival Story:
Our oldest son went into the Marine Corps and we agreed to take care of Indy until he got out and got situated. He got married to his fiance while still in the USMC. They had a daughter. He did 4 yrs and got out to become a policeman. But they were struggling so we kept Indy with us. They then had a son so they still weren't ready to take Indy with them so to date Indy is still with us. He knows my husband and I as grandmom and grandpop. He sleeps in our room, sits by our feet. He is loyal and loving and funny and he often talks to us in his little doggie way by trying to vocalize. We try very hard not to laugh. Once scolded for going in the bedroom as we didn't get to take him out fast enough, my husband hollered at him. And Indy sat upright on the floor on the other side of the bed and began hollering back at him almost like he was talking in an odd way...making loud melodic sounds while opening and closing his mouth and nodding up and down. We never laughed so hard. We adore him and he is our baby. I can't imagine life without him!

Indy woke up this morning and raced to the back patio door tail swooshing and mouth opening and closing while he vocalized in doggie language for me to hurry and let him out. At once he ran out and began sniffing around in the grass searching for the scent of the squirrels who frequent our yard looking for scraps. He ran around to the fence diving our yard from our friends and next door neighbors in hopes of spotting their german shepherd Oscar. They are pals. Sometimes he'll go out and wait anxiously and yelp loudly for Oscar to come out. Then they begin their race from one end of the fence to the other, almost as if they are actually racing each other. It's so funny to watch. This afternoon after one of his bkyd runs, he came in and waited patiently for his afternoon snack. I said "cookie" and his ears perked up and he ran over and sat at attention. I gave him his cookie and as usual he dropped it and ran around in a circle before proceeding to eat it. He tends to make a game out of it. Afterwards he settled down for a little nap. This evening after dinner, I had a bit of icecream and I gave him a tablespoon of it. He really enjoyed that. I threw the ball back and forth to him a few times and now he's resting quietly watching grandpop play his video war game.
