Arrival Story:
We were looking for another GSP, as our Max had passed away the previous year, unexpecdatly, and we wanted our Will to have a companion. My husband noticed Dexter posting at the Town of Richland Shelter in Sandy Creek, NY not very far from my parents. So they went and did the preliminary meet and greet... and stated that if we didn't take him they would. So we drove the 3 and a half hours to meet him and as our 14 month old daughter gave him a hug and kiss and our 8 year old GSP seemed OK we knew he was coming home. We were told that we are his fifth home...possible sixth. He is great and very affectionate...and a constant reminder in his mannerism of our beloved Max.

Dexter is really fitting in well. He has found his smile and it is so beautiful!!! He has become our daughters best friend and taken some pressure off of Will. I forgot how much I missed a dog that was always ready with a kiss! He really has helped balance things around is more complete with 2 dogs. We are so glad we found Dexter, and I think he is very glad he found us! Welcome home D.... we love you!

Yup that's right, my brother, Will turns the big double digit tomorrow! I'm not sure what all that means, but the pawrents say it's big. So if you think to give him a bark out that would be great!


You, Me and a dog named D.

Yup thats what Dad said to Mom as we drove away from the dump, I mean the drop off of Will and the Furless one. Yup thats right we met the grandpawrents and dumped....I mean dropped them off on Friday night. So for this whole week it is all about me. I have to say it's about time.

So far there has been plenty of belly scratches, uninterupted naps in Wills crate, and all the scraps for me. Yup, I'm thinking that this is the life I was destined for. Mom keeps saying not to get to use to this, but how could I not!?!?!? Oh, well, I shall suck it all up while I can!
