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!
Hi gang! We seldomly get on Dogster. But we're still here! Hope everyone is safe and warm! I haven't been eating as much - not much playtime so I'm not as hungry. Besides I don't want to get fat! I have to represent my breed! :) Mom and dad are good. Just like me and Darcy they're waiting for winter to end so we can hang out on the deck! Have a great day everyone!
Boy we've missed you guys! Mom finally changed her password and we're baaaaackkkk!!! Whooooohoooo!!! Mom's a bit peeved and needs some help. We've been a Plus member for years, renewing again in August, yet our photos say we're over our limit... What gives? This is why we took such a long break to give Dogster time to regroup - again. Did we miss something? Heeeeellllpppp!!!!
Anyway, how is everyone!!!!! Summer has been a breeze here this year. Not hot at all!! We've been swimming almost weekly, yup, swimming. I'm and official Fin-Dog! :) I love it!! Mom sits on the dock and says, "Go swim" and I do a lap at the lake! Well, not the entire lake I go out a ways and come back in!
Hope everyone is doing great! Gotta go!! :) We'll check in later today! :) Love you guys!!!!!!!! :)
Mom broke me :( It was really cool out yesterday and she started a fire in the fire ring. Well you know me I want to play with the Chuckit ball. Mom threw it and I took of. Flying across the ground! Somewhere along the playtime I hurt my back leg. Mom said the ground isn't smooth and she broke me :( I got a massage, went to sleep and slept all night. Woke up this morning feeling much better. We went for our usual walk and I was overly calm. Mom said I must still be sore - uh yea! So we finished our walk and mom got busy doing her thing. I was pooped out! Friday we walked around the lake in town. It was cold out and I still splashed in the lake. Then I had training. Darcy came along for the ride :) Then running around the playground yesterday. I was glad to see mom go to work today! :) She rode her Harley in. Dad said he's going to drive in tonight (he's working midnights) that way mom can drive home and dad can ride home in the morning. Sounds geat! :)
Mom posted a photo of me and dad on FB today. She said today is Father's Day. We'll mom made sure my dad got noticed.... :)
