Arrival Story: After losing Turner we thought we could never have another dog, let alone a puppy. We started to "just look" and found some pups at a rescue. Went to see them a couple of times, but still wasn't sure. Went to Petfest 2011 and Grunt (formerly Marine) was in a pen with one of the original pups we were interested in. Grunt walked right up to hubby waggin his tail and smiling. Then he came over to me. I knew we were hooked from that moment on.
Bio: Grunt and his siblings were the result of his momma being taken to a friends while her human was away. The friend "accidentially" let the female breed with her male pit. DUH!! We believe the pups were brought to Joyful Rescues over the Memorial Day weekend. As their names were all after the armed forces. Grunt's original name was Marine. We, of course, changed it to Grunt. Grunt is so steady in personality, he loves Darcy to pieces and has brought her personality out beyond her training. He's working his healing magic on hubby and I. Making the sun shine in our home again. We just love him!
Mom and dad were gone for 2 whole weeks! Geez! I missed everyone! I played like crazy, mom can tell by my filed down nails! :) Darcy has eye gunk. I've got a little bit, but mom says mine looks like allergies. While mom and dad were gone it snowed here! WHAT?? Snow in May??? Yup! There are trees just starting to get their buds so there is plenty of pollen. Mom and dad cut the grass and I love to mouse in it! Only bad part is I start the reverse sneeze and snorting! That's why mom thinks it's allergies in my eyes! I've been sleeping like a rock also. It's exhausting being on vacation! Mom and dad rode their motorcycles to Myrtle Beach. Mom said they put on 1700 miles total trip! Geez! That's alot! Turns out that dogs are allowed on the beach at certain hours. Dad likes to golf and there are plenty of golf courses and mom is happy with salt air and sand. Soooo, it looks like mom and dad are going to scout the area for the next few years before they retire! Yipppeee!!!
Thanks HQ for selecting me as Diary of the Day! Thank you Nina for the awesome picture! Today was the day we've been waiting 5 months for! When we woke up it was 61 degrees outside! And only got nicer afterthat! There was an amazing breeze which we enjoyed in the playground. We stayed in the playground for about an hour before we had to go in. I was pretty tuckered out from chasing my chuck-it ball. Darcy is doing her vomit thing that is slowly driving mom nuts. At least our poop is solid. We are lovin pumpkin! :) Mom said she'll be home all day tomorrow. It's her day off! Wooohooo!!! Mom said she's got some running to do but not until we walk, hit the playground and chill for a bit. Then she's got to get our stuff ready for our vacation. Me and Darcy are heading back to the kennel for 2 weeks! I had so much fun last time, can't wait to meet new friends...
