My little shadow….watching my husband and son shoveling a path for him to run along after a blizzard in February. Every so often, they’d throw him a snowball to leap after. If you view large, you can see someone on the path in the reflection of his eye.
The Vet told us he’s probably part husky, German shepherd and lab, at the very least. He found me when I was taking a walk in the park back on April 23, 1999. Just a wee pup he was, all alone…soon as he saw me, he was at my heels!
Naturally I scooped him up and he proceeded to lather me with a million kisses.
Brought him home to meet the cat, who was twice his size. Really didn’t want a dog so I had to lay down the law. Put him in the little bathroom with a pillow and newspapered the floor and told him, No scratching the door, No chewing the paper, No making any mess whatsoever and No barking! Next morning, went to check on him as he hadn’t made a peep all night! He looked up at me with his sleepy little brown eyes still snuggled on his pillow. “So you think you’re moving in do you?!”, I said. Fast forward 12 years later, he’s sleeping behind my computer chair like he always does…my little shadow. =)
