Arrival Story:
I rescued him and he rescued me back from the animal shelter in palo alto california. I was looking for a smaller dog who might like car trips and lots of time at the park. When I showed up at the Palo Alto Humane Society (THANKS!!) he was there. He just saddled up to the front of the cage and leaned in for some love.....the rest as they say is history! ***Gromit Hoover Peabody died peacefully in my arms on March 21, 2010 in New York City while visiting his family there. In his honor if you decide you can make a charitable donation to your favorite no-kill shelter which is where we adopted our little Gromit.

he is really, really smart.......he is a wonderful companion and has been a key part of my life, we go everywhere together! we have both had some challenges health-wise and we have helped each other through them...I could not have done it without his love....

I can still remember that first day my mom brought me home, she drove a small car with a console in the middle and was picking me up on her way to work. I had never been in a car before and could barely contain myself. I pee-d and poo-ed and barfed all over her car but I sure loved the view from the top of that console, I could see the world from there. Man we were going places. I got back to her house in San Francisco with the view of that nice red bridge and sat right next to her warm leg the whole night on this big couch, man was it great to finally have a home. Seems like yesterday and yet in a way so long ago......

Mom and I have been through a lot since then. I am lucky to have her and she is lucky to have me. I have survived a broken back, getting attacked by a mean old boxer dog, escaping and getting lost, and getting bit by a racoon that I chased down the driveway.....but here I am 10 years later and still kickin'. I mostly act like a pup, still run around in the bookstore, and on the beach and love going up to the country for long walks in the woods.

I plan to celebrate my big day by eating lots of carrots and cheese with some of my neighbors and friends hopefully my pals her and you can all come to my party.

The only thing I wish was that mom didn't start calling me methuselah! I'm not sure what it means but its sure hard to say.
Who loves ya baby?
Gromit Hoover Peabody's who!!!!!
