Hey guys, sorry we haven't been able to post in the past couple days. Motley and I have been out of the house so much that I haven't been able to sit down and get our thoughts together. We hope everyone enjoyed President's Day. Hopefully you were lucky enough to get off work and enjoy it.
Motley insisted I take the time to share some big news that just happened within our family that he is extremely excited about. He's got a new doggy family member!!!
Here's some background information. My aunt and uncle used to have two german shepherd mixes that after the years grew old and passed away. They waited a little bit before considering it was time to get a new doggy companion, and went looking for another beloved german shepherd. After looking around for awhile, they found the one. I introduce you to Molly!
What a pretty girl she is!!!
So jumping forward a little bit, it got in my Aunt and Uncle's minds that they had the time, space, a resources to possibly become a home for a foster dog. This is something I personally commend them for greatly!! Not everybody can do that, yet alone do it whole-heartedly.
This is where Koen, another German Shepherd comes into the picture. He was there first foster dog and when he came to their house you couldn't do anything but feel bad for this guy's past. Koen went through some bad stuff, even having to get one of his legs amputated. I was happy to see while in his foster house Koen was gonna be able to get the presidential treatment. He deserved it!!!
Because of my Aunt and Uncle, Koen was now able to experience the beach/water, get to go on hikes, and have one of the best sisters around, Molly.
After some time and a bunch of failed adoption attempts, it soon became evident that this might really be the place for Koen to call his forever home. It would have been hard not seeing him around anymore, esp for Molly!:) After thinking and thinking about it they decided Koen was where he needed to be!!! Welcome to the family Koen!!!!
I just wanted to post about this because you don't always get to see a dogs turnaround from bad to good. I also would once again like to commend my Aunt and Uncle for taking the time to get Koen back on track and showing him the love and dedication he needed and deserved. Motley's looking forward to all the big dog play dates in the future!!!!
