Meet Reese's if you haven't already met him. He is our "rescue" chocolate lab. We got him one year ago today when he was 8 months old. We were his 6th home in 8 months. He had a really rough first year. When we got him, he wasn't house trained and was about 10 lbs underweight. He is really smart and we housed trained in just a couple of days. Shortly after we got him, he ate a rock and it was lodged in his intestines. He had to have emergency surgery which left him with a 6" scar. He sure has been a handful but he is very loving and sweet. We sent him to "boot camp" training and he did very well. He still gets into things but he is definitely a lot better. You have to remember that labs are pups for 2 years and he will be 2 on June 15. We are so glad he found us and that he is in his "Forever Home" with us and we do love him very much.

This is Reese's today:

This is when he tore his bed apart while we were out of the house:

    What a beautiful dog! He looks so happy and content! Rescue animals are so appreciative, but most of all, loving . . .

    Nancy, I think you should print and frame that top picture of Reeses. He looks so handsome and you can see how calm and relaxed he is. I know that he loves his forever home and that you and Larry love him.

    I heard that about labs...they are quite a handful when young! Our dog Angel, 14 now, was re-living her puppyhood because she never had one being that she was in survival mode at that time in her life. She was captured with her mother and brought to the dog pound and subsequently rescued by us. She has been a wonderful pet and companion and almost perfect to walk, and I will miss her terribly when that time comes. But, wow! What a dickens she was when she was young!
