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!
Wind, rain, ice, snow - cold! Yup it's March in the mountains! On a good note last night mom heard geese flying overhead. This morning she saw a flock fly by our house. And tonight at work she saw robins.... there is hope!
You can almost see it! There is still about 6 inches of snow in our yard, but it's sunny and melting the snow away. Slowly! I ran out in the playground today. Now I've got ice rash on my legs :( But mom and dad loved on it and I feel great!
Woke up to the sun! Played in the sun! Layed on the deck in the sun! It's a good day! :)
We've got a busy day (or so mom says) today. The sun is shining! SUN!! We're going for a walk, mom is making dad join us! :) Then we've got to go in the woods and find the downed trees. See a friend uses a woodstove to heat his house. He's old and frail. Well he asked mom the other day if he could come get some wood. That he had been scrounging for wood. Mom said no problem. They'll be over on Saturday. But since today and tomorrow is mom and dads day off they're going to cut and drag pieces of downed trees out of the woods. That should be interesting considering there is still like 9" of hard packed snow on the ground. Getting the 4-wheeler to where it needs to be will be a big challenge. But like mom says. Nobody or nothing should be cold this winter!
Mom and dad are going to an Outdoor show tonight. Which is good, by then me and Darcy will be ready for our nappie!
