Wow, it has been 6 months since mom, dad, and Lucy drove up to LA to pick me up and bring me to my new home in San Diego. That day was so smoky because of all the firestorms and so scary. I had been living with a family for all of my 7 years and all of a sudden I was in a kennel with German Shepherds! I was very skinny and very nervous.
When I first met mom and dad I loved them right away. And Lucy, too, even though she barked at me the whole way home! Once she made sure I knew that she was the Queen, we got along fine. A little showing of "teefers" and growling at first but otherwise fine.
I was very depressed that first week and pretty much curled up in a ball. I just wasn't sure this would be where I would be living. So much change happening so suddenly. But I gradually perked up, began eating well and getting to know my house and my yard. Once I learned the doggy door, I was "the bomb".
I am now heavier and my beautiful red fur has grown in. It is very soft and shiny. I am on medications for seizures which were mild and for probable hip dysplasia but am doing well healthwise.
Lucy and I have become a pack and are great pals. We love hiking with mom and going to the park on weekends when dad is home. We spend a lot of time "hunting" for critters in the yard, mostly rats and lizards and an occasional bunny. We have yet to catch anything!! We have recently started our version of Golden Wrestlemania. Lucy is pretty dominant but I have pinned her a few times. Only problem is that I end up with goober ears. Lucy has lots of slobber!
All in all, my life is just wonderful. I am the luckiest dog to have been picked from the GRCGLA webpage to be Lucy's brother.
