Meet Brody the newest addition to my family. I was with my son and daughter in law a couple of weeks ago in Flagstaff. They decided I needed a dog. I agreed and told them I was sure I would adopt a dog when I was ready. They insisted that I was ready and asked me to go with them to look at some dogs ready to be adopted. We ended up at the Humane Society. My son asked me what kind of dog I wanted. I had large dogs in the past but didn’t feel they would be the best choice for me at this stage in my life. So I describe my future dog in this way; 25-30 lbs, not a puppy, already trained, with low dander and minimal shedding please! We went inside and the first dog I saw was this little guy. He is a cocker spaniel/poodle mix, about 5 yrs old, well trained, doesn’t shed because he has hair not fur, very personable and energetic! It was love at first sight for both of us. It is nice to have a four legged buddy again and he certainly brings a lot of loving energy to our home. I know at some level he appreciates me “rescuing” him and I truly feel he has rescued me from routine and predictability. Walking Brody is a grand adventure. Everything is new to him and it allows me to experience my neighborhood in a different light. Brody loves all people and animals and he is ready to spread the love around! I look forward to discovering, along with Brody, the magic and wonders of Scottsdale. Stay tuned for updates on our journey!
Have you been “rescued” by a pet? I would love to hear about it. Please leave a comment on my blog and I will share in future posts.
Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Has he successfully trained you yet?
After a lifetime of giant breed dogs, I recently added not just small but tiny dogs to the household. It is a whole new ballgame.
It is fun watching them discover snow for the first time.
