Arrival Story:
We went to the local humane society to look at dogs. When we first arrived Radar was being looked at by a different family, after we had filled out the paperwork to see him. We didn't want to interfere, so we looked around more. But we kept thinking about Radar. So we asked the adoption counselor if Radar had in fact been adopted. She went to check, and he hadn't been so we requested to see him. My husband and I were sitting in the "meeting room". Radar ran in and came right up to my husband and started licking him and then ran over to me and licked my hands as well. He leaned on both of us and continuously wagged his tail. After a short period of time we knew we wanted to take Radar home. So we started the process of adoption and before you knew it he was on his way home with us.

Radar was a stray when the Humane Society picked him up. We aren't sure how long he was a stray, but we know that he wasn't a run away. He has gotten off of his leash three times (we have since purchased a harness to keep that from happening) but each and every time, with barely any recall work (as we hadn't had him that long) he has come running back to us when called or simply stayed by our side. We aren't sure if he had a home before us, or if he was born a stray. Either way he never has to worry about that again. He is our baby boy and we love him very much.

Big Day Fur Me

Today was a lot of fun! Mom went off to work as usual, but before she left she gave me extra cuddles this morning. She said she needed them because she didn't want to go to work, but had to. She wanted to stay home and play with me!

But thankfully today was a short work day for Mom. Both Dad and I were really happy to see her when she got home. I was wagging my whole butt, rather than just my tail when she walked in the door.

Mom and Dad had to leave shortly there after. They said they had some errands to run.

When they got back they had something for me. It was Frontline Plus. Mom had been looking around a lot for the best price on a three month supply of it. Oddly enough the best place she found was my vet!

So they put on my first dose of it. I didn't want to sit still for it though so it's not quite in between my shoulder blades, but close enough Mom says.

Then Mom and Dad took me for a car ride! I love car rides! They are almost as good as walks!

We went to a local pet store that Mom and Dad both really like. I really like it there too! We always come home with something for me. Mom says I'm a spoiled brat, but Dad says that's okay because I deserve it. Mom then has to smile and agree. I just grin at them.

I have a new toy and they got me a new bandanna! I don't know why they like bandannas so much. But I have two now! Mom says there will be more to come. I still try to chew on it though whenever they put it on me.

Now we are all home and we just got done playing with my new ball. It's been a big day with so much going on!

On 04/02/10 my Mom and Dad came to the local humane society. As they were walking around they passed the room I was in and peeked inside. I was sitting there on my dog bed, being a good boy and just looking back at them. I wasn't barking, I wasn't wagging my tail, I was just very curious.

Mom pointed out my curly tail and said that she thought it was so cute! Mom and Dad read my "profile" that was posted outside of my room. They thought my name was cute, and read about my personality, and all the other information the nice people at the humane society had put down for others to read.

They looked at one another and decided to go to the front and ask to see me. They got the paperwork and came back by my room, sat on a bench in front of it and filled it out. They then gave it back to the receptionist and not so patiently waited to meet me face to face.

While they were waiting one of the adoption counselors came by and put a sign on my door saying that I was being considered for adoption. Mom and Dad then realized that another family was interested in me as I was taken out of my room to meet the other people.

They were sad, but didn't want to interfere in case I had found my forever home. So they looked around some more and met another dog who is also a good boy, but didn't quite seem like the right fit for my Mom and Dad.

After talking to the adoption counselor that they were assigned to, they decided to ask about me again to see if I had in fact been adopted. The counselor went to check and left Mom and Dad in the room where the dogs and the humans meet one another face to face. It turns out that the other family had decided that I wasn't the right pup for them, and that I was still ready for adoption. So The counselor opened my door to let me in and meet Mom and Dad.

I went to Dad first and gave him lots and lots of kisses and leaned against his legs. Then I ran over to Mom and gave her lots of kisses to and trotted circles around them both, smiling the whole time.

Before I knew it Mom and Dad told the counselor that they wanted to start the adoption process for me, and the counselor smiled and said, "I think he'd be a good fit for you two!"

I wagged my tail in agreement and was put back in my room. The counselor sent Mom and Dad back up to the reception area while she put a sign on my door saying that I was going home!

Mom and Dad paid for my adoption fee, bought me a brand new leash and some toys to go home with. Then they went into a room and signed all the papers that they needed to. Then someone came back got me, and walked me out to Mom and Dad.

I was a little afraid of the car and refused to jump up. So Mom climbed into the backseat and held my leash while Dad picked me up and placed me into the car.

I love my new home and am so glad that Mom and Dad found me and that I found them!
