    Update on Boy with new puppy...a happy ending story

    I posted pictures of my grandson with his new puppy a few months back and so many of you took the time to look at them. I wanted to share this blog which is the story of how he and his dog came together. Hope you enjoy it.

    No coincidence there. The dynamic duo were meant to be together! Lovely story.

    Sounds like she wasn't the one "lost" but was just waiting for her "right boy" to come pick her up.
    What a sweet story!

    Be sure you keep that story; I would even frame it and give it to your grandson so he can put it on a wall or place of honor about him and his dog. What a lovely, wonderful happy ending to a dog's tale to end up with such a loving family. Thanks for sharing

    It's so comforting to know folks adopt these animals as pets. Or is it the other way around? Either way, everyone benefits! Wonderful story. Thanks for sharing.

    Rescues make wonderful pets! We have 2 pedigreed (or high dollar, as DH calls them), a pound rescue and one that I found in the middle of the highway and love them all the same. Each has their own personality, traits, and likes and dislikes. Thank you daughter for saving an unwanted dog. He and your grandson look like a match made in heaven!

    Very nice story. One of my dogs is from County shelter and other 3 from homes that needed to give them a new home. What surprises me that people who have had a dog for 2-5 years never inquire how they are doing after a week or so. I always wonder about the kittens I have found homes for and will follow up with an email after a couple months to see how they are doing. I do not have any strong attachment to the kittens but still wonder how they are doing. Take care.

    What a heart warming story! We have had a few rescue dogs, our two Boxers in my avatar are our current ones. I think they must sense how lucky they are and reward you with so much love and loyalty. Thanks for sharing that!

    Like I always say, adopt a dog/cat save a life. i don't understand why we need to breed animals when there are so many unwanted ones. Maybe one day people will come to their senses and there will be no more unwanted, neglected animals.

    What a beautiful picture! Every little boy needs a dog as a best friend.

    I have a rescue Border Collie and he is just the most beautiful dog. It's lovely to see a boy and his dog together being such good mates.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    What a great story. I was surprised to see that you went to Nashua for the adoption. That is where I was born and lived there for 60 years before moving to Ohio. Take care in this bad Frankenstorm
