Happy Adoption Day!

One year ago, we rescued our dog Alex from Virginia Beach’s Animal Control. He was turned in by a family that said they could no longer take care of him because they had a baby. He was only 5 months old at the time? Last time I check, babies are made in less than 5 months. We think Alex was probably kept in a very small room in there house because he refused to enter our bathroom or laundry room for months after we brought him home.

Although he is a “dumb dog” and lacks simple doggy boundaries at time (my lap is not always available for him to sit on), he is a permanent member of our family. He truly is a family dog, and I feel very lucky to have found him. He’s Cole brother. They are best buds. I have no doubt he will love Chet too. He is so gentle with my 2-year-old niece. He is full of energy and loves to play, but he can be a good listener. He’s Christian’s skateboard buddy. He is my annoying running buddy.

I’m so glad we found him just in time for Thanksgiving last year.

  1. Totally and completely adorable!

    (My pound-rescue pet is a cat named Peanut. She is also of the somewhat dumb variety… I mean… what other cat rolls over on the bed and FALLS OFF??? But she’s so adorable and has such a sweet temperament it’s easy to overlook the fact that she’s not so bright!)


    Three cheers for rescuing pets from the pound!

  2. my buddy Ru created an app called “52 dog tricks” (b/c he was bored and wanted to teach his dog tricks and couldn’t find an app so created one – is that crazy to anyone else but me???). its been great, and is really simple (just have to purchase a clicker about $5). my dumb dog is learning them pretty steadily. cole might enjoy doing it – the app is super simple and fluid to follow. yea for rescue dogs!!!!!
