He’s ours. He’s been ours since our love affair started. He’s everything we want and need and his 20lb head is currently over heating my lap. And it’s a wonderfully comforting feeling.
WE have a dog again. It’s such a wonderful thing to say! We were set up, but we were totally ready for it. It’s time
It was this picture that first stole my heart… I mean is there anything NOT to love about a macho man in a tutu?! I think not. This photo credit goes to Lisa, who was his date at the Baltimore Pride Parade and also there for his intake/surrender. The literal second I was liking/commenting on this picture, she posted the following on my facebook page, like the exact same second, saying that Chock was excited to meet me tomorrow at our fundraiser for BARCS. To say that she knew what I was looking for was an understatement. She knew all to well.
Look at that tongue!
The rest is history. Brian and I have been ready for a dog for a while. We contemplated adopting Holly, and Lovebug, and even Bodie (though I was so against a dog that young)… but all along, we were waiting for our perfect match. There really is nothing imperfect about any of our previous fosters… but we just knew they weren’t our next heart-dog. At one point, Brian suggested just heading to the shelter, and picking a random… just like we did with Knox. It worked out for the best in the end, didn’t it? His suggestions made sense…the longer we had a dog, the longer we nit-picked. Knox was far from perfect, but with your dog, you make it work. So when Chock arrived, we both knew it was a done deal. A few quick things to iron out (like meeting his inherited bff, Tyson, which went amazingly), but we knew, he was ours.
And here he is. Welcome Chock. We’ve been waiting for you. And we know Knox would approve
now about that ‘adopt me collar’…. it has got to go!
