Bringing My "Work" Home with me...'s been a while since my last post! A lot has been happening around here. I work part time at a Vet's Office & now have a New Family Member, adopted from our office.

Meet Chief...

He was brought in with injuries to his front legs after being hit by a truck & was abandoned by his owners at our office. After a month in our kennel run & no contact from his owners, our Very Kind Vet allowed me to take him home to "foster" (instead of sending him to the shelter) until I could get him into a rescue.

Well, after being at my home for a week, I noticed a limp in one of his back legs & took him back in for a recheck with one of our Dr's....Just my luck...he has a knee that pops out of place & will need surgery. Wow...poor guy has 3 messed up legs! I took a deep breath & blurted out..."I'm Keeping Him then!"..."after I talk to my husband that is..."

Well, as you can see...Hubs was easy to convince that Chief should stay on with us. We both knew that the chances of getting him a home, or even into a rescue w/ a bum knee, would be down right impossible. His future would be bleak at best.

Chief is a funny fellow. He likes to play & he loves to sleep on the couch...on his back. LOL! He is a comedy show on 4 clumsy legs.

I guess you could say that we have officially "Gone to the Dogs" around here. I didn't plan on another dog, but none of the others were planned either & I don't know what I would do with out them. Sometimes things just work out that way I reckon. Welcome to the Family Chiefie-Poo!

Chief is such a sweetie. He sure is one lucky dog to have you and your hubby as new owners.

oh Starla, i could just cry when I see him in that cage, and to think now that he has permanent residence at your wonderful home. You are so giving, and make such a sacrifice, I know the work in bringing just one more into the fold. You are an angel!

and meant to say, looks like he's made himself right at home, and why wouldn't he, he knows he can. Your hub is a good guy too.
