Opening the gate to the back yard to get out and go to the park on his own

Arrival Story:
A family member's friend was moving and could not take the whole family (mother and 3 pups) so we took him in. Being that he was the runt, he got the food last and was skin and bones when he came to us. Now he is plump with love handles.

Lefty passed away 01/31/06 after having surgery to remove a straight pin he accidently swallowed that was dropped by Grandma during a sewing project. The vet said he successfully removed the pin & noticed Lefty had an enlarged prostate and proceeded to remove that as well. When the vet called to pick Lefty up, I commented my insecurities about taking Lefty home while still heavily sedated and extremely weak. The vet said he'd be fine. Lefty passed away within 48 hours from possible internal bleeding. We had Lefty cremated and he is still with us, sitting above the tv that he loved watching with Grandpa.
