Likes: Swimming, sleeping on the couch, cuddling up with my mom and dad (but especially my mom!)
Pet-Peeves: When my husband and I hug and ignore him.
Favorite Toy: The Kong and his stuffed animal monkey
Favorite Food: Almost anything
Favorite Walk: On any beach, although he really did enjoy all of our walks in San Francisco. Perfect weather and location for a dog.
Arrival Story: Deacon wandered into a hospital in the town we lived in. Luckily a member of a rescue society was working there and took him home so he wouldn't be sent to the pound. A freind of the resucuer paid for his heartworm to be treated (there are great people everywhere!). After a month-long search for his owner an ad was placed in the paper "Free to good home". We've all been lucky ever since.
Bio: Deacon has moved several times and been swimming in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. After starting in North Carolina, he moved to Dallas, Texas, then San Francisco. We now live in South Carolina so hopefully this will be his last move. He has seen more states than most people and even been to the Grand Canyon this past summer.
