Meet Doc!

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.11.1

“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.
