That's right, bigger than EVER, so the blog should now be called RVing dogs!
Shadow (on left) Is now 13 plus years old! He is doing fantastic for his age. Shylo is about one years old and a perfect fit for Shadow and our family. Rescuing a dog from an animal shelter is the way to go at least for us it was. There is so much involved in the whole process and steps that may go unnoticed by many. This story was written shortly after we got Shylo to thank the people at the Manitowoc, County Shelter and to help others see some of the fine touches that make the whole thing possible. The simple things that made a HUGE difference! Here is our Shylo Story:
My Name is Shylo AKA as Kingston. I was at the Manitowoc County Humane Society. A really nice lady brought me there because she didn't know where I came from and I wasn't much help. Emily is the one who took this picture, she was really nice too!
It wasn't too bad there the people were awesome! Some of them didn't even get paid to help with all of us. This is Tony, he would come and take me for walks! How cool is that! I just had to give him a hug. I wanted to hug Emily too, but she was too busy taking these great photos!
The Staff kept telling me that they were going to find me a good forever home and that everything was going to be alright. Then these people drove about 60 miles just because they saw that one photograph! It was love at first sight, that lady was hooked!
I found out that they have been looking for a long time, and me and these other dogs are just a few of the dogs they looked at! I hope they come back for me, it just felt so right when they were here. I guess we will have to leave it in God's hand, you know God is Dog spelled backwards right?
This is the last time I get to sprawl out on the whole seat, you can bet your tail, I am going to enjoy it!
Well, I sure didn't expect momma to give up her seat in the front just to keep me sufficiently spoiled!
I am so happy to be going to my new forever home!
Don't you get too close to my momma back there, hey.... get off her lap!!!
You still love me more, right momma?
He's my buddy, well he is my buddy when I can't be by my momma! When we get home we can trade alright?
Well you may get to ride in the back with my momma, but I get to ride in the front seat and hold hands with my papa!
Oh crap now he is in my face; he didn't look this big on the outside of the car! I guess I better start being nicer!
I said I would be nicer, I didn't say I wasn't going to keep my eyes on you!
Shadow, I just want to say Thank you for accepting me at the shelter. I know it was up to you if I got to go home with you and your family.
This is the first day of the rest of my life! I( I must say, it is looking to be a beautiful one)!
Yippee! They let me come in the house AND they let me up on the furniture!
The furniture is much more fun when I have a human to share it with!
This guy sure laughs a lot! How was I suppose to know if I rolled over I would fall on the floor!
He is my buddy, I really like my new home!
I was just sitting on his lap, but I just can't seem to get close enough, maybe higher would be better.
I cuddle and do a lot of fun stuff with my new momma to, but she hates getting her picture taken!
I have these huge windows I get to look out! I get to see dogs and kids fishing all the time!
I get to help papa when he goes into the office to work.
We love to go for walks, but lately it has been really hot, so we go really early in the morning and right before it gets dark outside!
We go for walks every day., we went to see the steel beams from the World Trade Center.
I have been so happy, They treat me so good; it is like my feet haven't touched the ground since I got here!
They even put the recliner out for me! I am so happy I smile when I am sleeping!
Pinch me, I need to make sure this isn't just a dream!
Thanks for not pinching me too hard! Now I can go back to sleep!
When they said we were going to Manitowoc today fo meet my new brother, I was expecting things to be much worse!
Its not just about me, I do my part to. Shadow has been the best big brother to me. So I help him out when I can.
There was a thunder storm and I sensed that Shadow was a little anxious, so I laid down by him.
That seemed to help him a little, so I rested my head on him and he calmed right down and we both fell fast asleep!
This is the life!
Thank you staff at the Lakeshore Humane Society in Manitowoc, WI for picking this family for me!
And that was the beginning of our life with our newest family member. This time while we were in Wisconsin, I got three things I was thrilled to get: another dog, a smart phone and a car! These are in the order of what I was most excited about getting!
