Many years ago we had a beautiful Golden Retriever named Copper. Sadly, Copper passed away, taking a little piece of our hearts with him.
Well, Amanda's been
nagging us to death asking for a playmate for Fred for a while now, a dog she can "call her own". As any parent can attest to when being hounded (no pun intended) for a pet, she's promised to bathe, feed, care for and do all the stuff that pretty much is work when it comes to having a pet.
We finally gave in and found this precious boy!
Otis will be 4 years old next month and was in foster care, rescued from a bad situation. He has lived most of his life chained to a tree with no shelter. When he was given up, he was nearly 35 lbs. underweight and covered in ticks, fleas and tested positive for heartworms, which he is being treated for now.
He loves his new family, his siblings and has even won over the heart of his grumpy 4-legged brother.
And us? We are completely smitten with this gorgeous boy and so thankful for the many, many years we plan on loving on him.
