Talking Introducing "Slim"

This is Slim. He is my dads dog. He's an 8 yr old JRT and SO full of life! My sister and her husband have been trying to get my dad to rehome him
My dad is in his 80's and has a hard time these days. He feels bad that he can't play with Slim as much anymore, but refuses to give him away. When I spoke with him a couple of months ago he said he wanted me to know that if Shaun and I ever want Slim, he's ours. My dad is the kind of person who will do anything for anyone, but would never come right out and ask for anything himself. It was his way of asking us to take Slim because he knows we love animals and would take good care of him.

We can't take him while Thorin is going through chemo, it would stress him out too much. But once he's done, we will be adding Slim to our family

The last thing Shaun and I would ever have thought about is adding another baby, especially with everything we've been through with our 2 this last year, but hey... what's one more?

Nookie and Slim were fast friends, and played very well together!! I was absolutely amazed at how gentle Nookie was with Slim
Slim, on the other hand, wasn't so gentle lol. He has small dog syndrome for sure. He bit Nookie a few times, but Nookie would just get a surprised look on his face and sit down. He's such a good boy. They just followed each other around, played and napped together. It was very cute
