On Sunday the third of March 2013, we got a phone call that we should come over and pick up a dog. Although we had considered finding one some day, it was truly a surprise to suddenly be an owner. We brought Roxy home with only her collar and some of her food. A friend even had to lend us a piece of rope for a leash. We became fast friends as I described in my first posting about it a few days later on Wilson's Forum.
Fitting, perhaps that the next posting we have here is of our new dog! Colt's family was a) away at work all day and b) out of state three weeks at a time. They purchased Colt for their son as a comfort dog at college, but college said no dogs over 60 pounds. Colt is 106! He's about 3 years old and seems very well-behaved. We'll update this as we get to know him. Until then, here is a current photo and one we found on PetKey.org when registering his microchip (we think he's the one in the back based on coloring).
