As of last weekend we have a new four-legged family member. Doc is an 8ish-year-old pointer my brother adopted through Illinois Shorthaired Rescue. We got word Doc is people-friendly, dog-friendly and just about everything-friendly, so I couldn’t wait to set up a meeting with his new cousins. I wasn’t the only excited one.
“Omygosh, Eko guess what!? We have a new friend!”
Welcome home, Doc
True to his resume, Doc is a sweet boy and happily introduced himself to the gang
Penny was thrilled to have a new pal and she stuck right to Doc’s hip. Literally.
“Soo…is she always like this, or what?”
Worried Doc might get overwhelmed, I considered bringing Penny inside. But the two quickly settled into a playful report and Doc gave as good as he got.
“Alright old man, you still got some life in ya!”
We only had time for a quick first meeting, but Doc, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. We have lots to learn about Doc and he has lots to learn about us, but we at least sure Doc knows what the word “treat” means.
“Did I hear someone say ‘treat?'”
He should fit right in. Looking forward to lots of fun adventure with the newest addition to our gang.
