Another new dog and a new house!

So we have yet another new and wonderful addition! This is Dudley (Chris says he looks like Dudley Moore, lol) He is an AMAZING little boxer boy that we pulled from a disgusting pound last week. The poor guy was only 36lbs and in 5 days he gained 7lbs!!!!! He's around 8-9yrs young, had fleas, and was a mess in general. He was very out of sorts and kind of still is. He didn't wag his tail, play with toys or give kisses but we are working on that and he gets better everyday. He was supposed to be a foster but this guy has been through too much and we love him too much already to let him go anywhere.

And on another happy note, we just bought a house!! It's official now! It has 2 acres of woods!!!

How many bedrooms does your new house have? Bathrooms? Is there a basement? I see there's a fireplace- that room must be great with the big window to watch the snow fall with a fire on? (sorry for the 20 questions but we just got a house in the spring, so the q'ns are still fresh)

oo woodstove! I'm almost jealous. We're the only ones on our street who don't have a wood stove... We have an electric one but that won't help in an ice storm..

Oh wait, you said a "wood stove in the basement"... Now I'm jealous. We don't have a basement.

Thanks guys
Oh Jenn you should've seen the poor little turd when I picked him up. Covered in brown dust - like you know the dust on shelves at the barn (I know you're a horse person too)? It was the weirdest thing. Just a layer of it on him, on his nose and face. My hands were shaking putting a collar on him and it took me a few tries, it was so upseting.

awww poor guy, they must have started using sawdust to clean with... nothing surprises me at that place as they never see the light of day. I'm heading there this week I think, once I hear from Deb about who's on the kill list.( I"m assuming he was from the place over the bridge. )

Congrats again, and you're so amazing to have taken this little guy in - fleas and all!!

Congratulations!! How awsome for you!! The dog and the house are beautiful, and I'm sure the doggies will love the 2 acres to play around on.

Hahaha, I know, I'm so lame - I keep circulating that same pic of Dudley. You can't even see his cute little face in it. I promise I'll get more soon!

Congratulations and you are wonderful for rescuing this poor pup. I can imagine the condition Dudley was in. The groomer where my Eskie goes for socialization has Boxers (her newest pup is in love with my dog) - and at 5 months was about Dudley's weight when you found him so for a dog of his years, not good. My guy's g/f is now about 45 pounds to his dismay - he weighs 22 lbs. and everyone gets big except him. I also want to see Dudley's face. I had a "dream" maybe more of a nightmare, that my Eskie and the Boxer had pups (not possible - my guy was already fixed) - Eskie body with Boxer face. Yikes. My guy just loves Boxers - except has come to realization that the ones he sees on the street are not part of his "control" group. One even covers her eyes in anticipation of an Eskie hug. Don't blame her.
