There were ten puppies in his litter, I believe there are four still with us. We drove all the way from Illinois to New York State and back to pick him up. He was an easy puppy and an even easier adult dog. I treasure every day we have with him.
Not too long after we brought him home we had a vacation scheduled, the dogs were being boarded at Barb's Hotel4dogs, he was too little to be kenneled so Barb kept him in the house with her. A very nice thing to do.

Happy Birthday Raider!! I'm so happy he's with you and had such a good run, so nice to see he's doing well. It doesn't surprise me to hear that Barb would sacrifice like that and keep a puppy in the house with her, so fun to have memories like that.
