Charlie and Scooter's Mommy

Hello to everyone I can never get enough of talking about my two boys, so I thought this forum sounded like fun.

I have a 3 yr old German Shepherd mix, Charlie. He came to me from an animal shelter and was a stray. He's only about 100 pounds but he is a very tall boy...I refer to him as my barking pony. He's the smartest dog I've ever met and is so easy to train...he just seems to pick up on things. I say something a couple times as we're doing it (like "go upstairs" "get in the tub" etc) and it becomes a command he knows. His favorite things are the local dog park, the laser pointer/flashlight, and squirrels.

I also have a 3 going on 4 year old Bichon Frise, Scooter. He was purchased at a mall pet store at about 6 months old by someone I know and was subsequently abused by a nasty boyfriend. This is how I came into the picture. I couldn't take my friend home with me, but I could take the dog, so he got out of that situation. He's a little slow (it's taken us 2.5 yrs to learn sit although he has it about 90% mastered now!) but he's the sweetest dog on earth. His whole goal in life is to have everyone love him. He's scared of most everything, but once he knows you're friendly, you have a new lap warmer

So, that's my little family. We live in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Nice to meet you all

The "rules" are : new person gets the donuts and we want to see pictures of your babies.

So glad you were able to give these two such a wonderful home after their shaky beginnings
Love me, love my dogs

Here's pictures from my wedding. Charlie was a groomsman and Scooter was a bridesmaid. I know, he's a boy and a bridesmaid, but it was more even that way, plus he looks cute in dresses. I'm sure he doesn't know the difference
