Ernie had such a cute little face.

Everyone is right, rescues are a blessing when they enter our lives. We have 2, Bella, the sweetest greyhound ever (and also one of the worst runners--kicked off the track early), and Cricket, a little dog we got at a shelter in St Louis.

Cricket was terrified at first. I'm certain that she had been abused. I've never seen a dog so fearful. After 6 1/2 months, she's now learned to walk on a leash and goes up to anyone who comes into our house and gently gives them a little nose on the leg greeting. If she's worried about them, she goes into her guard dog routine with a single "woof".

We love both of our girls so much.

What a sweet boy. So glad you gave him a happy home.



Well, I thought this was a new post on Ernie. Didn't realize I had already replied, but feel the same way.

We will take senior dogs any time. Our Otto came to us a horrifying mess at 7 and after a while got his health back and is such a love that we truly cannot imagine a nicer dog. He would not have survived at all except that he was such a love.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

Ernie came to us as Freedom. But we felt he looked like Ernest Borgnine especially when he was excited! We got him around Thanksgiving time in 2013. No one wanted a senior that was thought would die with in two months if he was lucky to live that long. So we got him for free. He had no expression on his sweet little face when we got him. But things sure started to turn around for him with in the first week he was with us. His tail started wagging just a tiny bit, then the light started coming into his eyes! He had a major surgery to remove a Nerve Sheeth tumor which took over two months to heal enough to go with out bandages and t-shirts. He loved going for walks out in the woods and being a couch tator. He also loved going anywhere with us. We had him for an awesome year, one month about 2 1/2 weeks before he just dropped one night.

First two pics are of Ernie the last one is of all 3 of our fur kids on Mule Mountain. Ernie, Sophie and Shiloh. We believe that Ernie experienced a lot of firsts with us including being loved, as well as loving to go out in the woods.
