Arrival Story:
It was one of those perfect things: The Cochrane Humane Society had said online that they had puppies in, and though we'd looked at adopting an older dog, the ones that could go to homes with small children all got adopted so quickly we never could manage it. So when the puppies were listed as adoptable, I (mom) booked it down to the shelter before they even had pictures up! On my way I stopped at the grocery store, and joked with a friend I'd run into that, "if they're Labs or Lab-mixes I'm coming home with one, whatever [my husband] says!" (I've always had a special soft spot for Labs). Well, sure enough, they were Lab-mixes! Because my husband was still resistant to the idea of getting a dog, I did a few minor puppy temperament tests on the pups, and noticed that the little curly-haired one had such a calm, easygoing, willing demeanor. I knew he was The One for our family! And at the end of the day, all I had to do to convince my husband was bring him down there to meet this sweet little guy, and he was totally in love!

Coda's Rescue Report

Mom...what is this?

Okay, so, this is weird! Mom says I'm a dog with a blog now, whatever that means! Whatever, I'm happy! Just like always! Apparently this will help me make friends. I love friends! Speaking of friends, been a while since I hung out with mine...Luka's a pretty cool guy: His person is mom's brother, and it's a lot of fun when we get to go run together. I think our people like it too. One of these days I might be as big as him! Mom says he's a "Dalmatian," but whatever, he's nice to me and he likes to have fun, so we're best buddies!

If Luka's a "Dalmatian," I wonder what I am! Mom talks about "Labrador" and "Shar Pei" a lot, but then sometimes there's mention of something called a "Bernese Mountain Dog," and sometimes a "Rottweiler". Who knows! But I like fun, people, friends...lots of things! Except that sharp thing the "vet" stuck in me. That I don't like. But at least the treats afterwards were good. Mom says I don't need another sharp thingy for a long time now at least...I'd kindof like more of those treats, though...
