happy anniversary, my forever pup














My little man and best boyfriend.
My husband's best buddy.
Pinto's brother bear.

I brought that handsome little guy home ten years ago today. My sister and I saw him at a pet adopt-a-thon and I could not resist. Luckily, my husband fell in love immediately upon seeing that adorable pup and named him Durango.
It's been ten years of countless adventures, chasing rabbits, and catching balls with the eternal puppy. He's a good boy, our Durangobear.

    1. Now that's one good thing about that Billy Jack country, plenty of room for the dogs to run....and chase rabbits, and chase the occasional deer.... ;)
      It's always an adventure with the little rez dog and Durangobear! xx

  2. LOVE that photo of his back legs sprawled out! Great perspective!
    I've told you before, but it bears repeating: I truly honor and am grateful that you choose to adopt. Thank you for that. Your dogs are lucky creatures to live in your love.

      Adoption is the only way to go. And I think I am the lucky one to be so privileged to live in their love!

  7. Beautiful pictures of your handsome boy. Isn't it amazing, the amount of joy that dogs bring into our lives. We rescued our girl, Molly, 4 years ago and can't imagine life without her.
