Arrival Story:
After searching for a black german shepherd, I found one at the rescue group in Allegany County, NC. We communicated back and forth and the rescue leader had decided to keep Gretta for herself. I understood cause she seemed like the perfect dog. So since I was still looking for a shepherd I agreed to come up to her rescue and look at what she had. Robert, my 9 year old roommates son came with me. He really want a dog to play with and run around with. Judy, the rescue leader showed us a great day. We saw her horses and her dogs, Robert had a wonderful time, he feed one of the horses some sugar. He also played with all her dogs, he really didn't want to leave. After all the fun we set out for the shelter and meet the dogs needing homes. We were about to leave when the vet said, do you want to meet the shepherd we just got in, he has a broken leg that can't be saved, but if you want to see him, I'll bring him out. To this day I don't know why I said yes, we were looking for a female german shepherd and a black one at that. Then he came into sight, a strawny, male, black and tan, leg dragging the ground, scabbie, and bleeding.....perfect dog. My heart was gone, Robert was a little hesitant, does it hurt? He asked me as I picked up the dogs foot which was bloody from the asphalt it was dragging upon. No I don't think he can feel it, I told him, it looks like it hurts, Robert replied. We call him Hoppy the vet tech informed us. Robert and I just looked at each other, we both knew what we were going do, then the canine leaned against Rob as if to take a load of and waiting patiently for affection for the young boy. As we left we told Judy we had to think, we had to decide what we were going do. So as we drove home, we discussed all we had seen that day. We called Judy and told her, please tell them to stop calling him Hoppy, his name is Calvin and he has a home. Four days later, on Halloween, Calvin neutered and minus a front leg came home, and we have loved him ever since.

Over the past year with Calvin, he has really come into his own. He is strong and beautiful, with a great temperment. He loves everyone, big or small. He seems so happy, with me and the rest of the family. He gets a little jealous of Nikki once in a while, but over all, I wouldn't trade him for anything.

Oh I had such a wonderful weekend. The weather was great and my mom was home all weekend. I love spending time with her, she rubs and brushes me just right.

Sunday she had to go check on the second shift crew at work, so I got to ride along. I love her job, they have a huge park behind the building and it has nature trails and it is bordered by a river on one side. There are just alot of really nice things to do there. Mom always opens the door at the plant so we can check on her. But she got done fast cause nobody showed up for work.

So she played with us and we got in the car to ride some more. I love spending days with mom, cause we always have fun. But I sure to sleep good after we play so much.

Ok I am going to check the perimeter of the yard now, cause I watch out for the whole family.

I am so excited, I went to the vet to get my yearly exam, and they made calendars, out of thier patients pictures. I was in there 5, count that again, 5 times. I was so excited I peed on the floor. It was an accident but I couldn't believe it.
My mom got a whole bunch of them to send to my friends, and especially to Judy who saved my life.
Oh mom's says I have to mention my sister Nikki is in the calander 2 times also, and our crazy bird, Lucy is in the calendar too, but just once. You know who the really star is.......ME and my 5 photos to make your new year filled with joy.

Oh I seem so mean, barking at people. But really I am just telling them to come see me. Once the meter lady gets in my yard I am all hers. She says I am her favorite on her whole route. And the nice lady in the Yellow DHL van, she brings me treats. I just love visitors. Last week some guys were in our basement, putting in some box-like-thingy to keep my family warm. I supervised the whole ordeal and tried to help the best I could. I escorted them to and from their truck when they needed more tools.

Oh I wish I could see new people everyday, well at least friends that bring me treats. What more could I ask for. Next week I think we get new doors, I really like Rick he has been over before. He knows I will help him.
