Thankful Thursday

Today we are thankful for those shelter that help those that can't help themselves...no matter what.

Oh geez....we got a new woofie relative.
NO NOT HERE!!!
Our grandma and grandpa got a dog.
Meet Izzo. Yes, after the head men's basketball coach at Michigan State.

He is a 2 year old corgi mix. Mom hasn't seen him yet - he just came home on Monday. He stands about 12 inches tall and weighs about 24 pounds. The shelter where they adopted him said he was a corgi mix. Mom asked if they had any background and grandpa said that the ladies at the shelter (who love this little dog) said the people came in, handed someone his leash and virtually ran out. So, no information. But he did test heartworm positive so he was treated by the shelter for that.

Grandma and grandpa say he is a little timid but mom said that she bets once he realizes how good he has it, he will settle right in. Heck, he is already allowed up on the furniture (that has NEVER happened with any other woofie).

  9. What a cute woofie. We are giggling here cuz my human sisfur says I'm allowed to go everywhere whereas her Tinkerbell (when she was growing up) had lots of limits placed on here. It happens!! We're happy for your gma and gpa. Whoops - what are you going to do if he comes to visit? You might end up liking him (shudder).
