Scary-looking humans! Getting my nails clipped - aaaahhhhh!
Treats of any kind, bacon, cheese, eggs - he loves everything.
We were thinking about getting a second dog when we saw Smudge on Petfinder. He was grinning as big as could be in the picture on the site. We called the shelter to find out about him. We learned that he had been abused pretty badly at some point, and had already been to three different shelters. He had even run away and been a stray dog for a while.
We couldn't resist his sweet face - and drove 4 hours to Kentucky to get him. They had no name for him. We spent a while thinking of names, and Smudge just seemed to fit - both for his slightly mottled spots and because he had been discarded like a smudged piece of paper.
For the first two hours of the ride home with us, he rode with his back turned away from us. Finally, he faced forward and took a long sniff of my hair. He now does this every single day.
