I was afraid we would never meet again


This precious creature, whom I met with his feral pack when he was nine weeks old under the porch of a historic site in Corpus Christi, Texas...


and who grew into this beautiful, loving, and intensely loyal family dog, nearly lost his life today. He was saved by the combined efforts of my Brother and two dedicated veterinarians.

Puppy is a truly good dog and a generous animal that has stood by my side through every moment of three of Josh's deployments. He is protective and fearless when I am not. He loves our children. And he is my friend; he is my great bird-chasing, bridle path-romping friend. I am so grateful I have no words.

Thank you so very much. He's home finally and take 16 doses of medication a day after part of his intestine was removed but he will make it. I don't know what i would do without him, he is the ever present huggable security system around here... be well and thank you again...
