The New Dog





So we had joked over and over about getting a new dog and I searched and searched showing Darrell dog after dog. But we never really agreed on anything. So we just continued joking and never really doing anything. But then Darrell decided he did indeed need a dog of his own. Not some stupid little white lap dog that dresses in pink dresses and sits only on my lap. He wanted a huntin' dog. Even though Millie shows great promise, she's a girl. And girls are apparently just not as good as boys. So he started looking. My one request was that we get a big dog. I mean big. I wanted an irish wolfhound or newfoundland, but of course that wasn't up to Darrell's standard of hunting mutts. So he set his heart on a German Short Hair. And wouldn't you know it he found a few. And after much visiting and deciding this dog wouldn't work, that dog was too shy, etc...Darrell found his dog. Moses. He was at a foster family fromt he Henry County Humane Society. He is 3 yrs old. They say he's a german short hair mix, although we think he's more a lab mix. But he's beautiful either way. And so well behaved. He's been a fantastic addition to our family. We've welcomed him with open arms and hearts.

Moses is very handsome! I love newfie's too, they are such big loveable dogs, that would have been fun to have! I'm glad Darrell got his dog. Cash has really turned out to be such a daddy's boy after all! I think dog's increase your quality of life, I can't wait to get Cash a playmate!

Moses is a beautiful boy! I really like the idea of having an older dog that had been fostered, you really get some background that way.

I like the new design on the site too - very nice!

Hello, Moses! He's such a pretty boy. I'm glad Darrell got his huntin' dog, and you got your preference for a larger dog. The picture of Moses and Millie at the window is great! :) A family of 7 now...hoo boy, Aubrey... ;)
