We have had Whiskey for 5 1/2 years. We adopted him through a rescue when we lived in Myrtle Beach. He was about a year and half old when we got him. Apparently, his previous owners took him to a Kennel, went on vacation, and never came back.
I don't understand stupid people.
One Saturday we went to the pet store to get cat food (we only had 8 cats back then. Yes, ONLY 8). As we parked the car we saw that they were having a pet adoption in front of the store. I told Hubby, "We are not coming home with any more animals. Not even a hamster."
What a fool I was.
Right out front was the perfect dog for us. We had talked about someday getting a dog and Hubby wanted a big dog. I wanted a cocker spaniel sized dog.
Whiskey is somewhere in between.
We asked to pet him. We loved him right away. We filled out an adoption application, bought our cat food, and went home.
The rescue called us later that day and asked if they could do a home visit to make sure we had a fenced yard. We said sure.
The next weekend we met the lady from the rescue at the pet store to pick up our new dog. We bought a collar and a leash and some food and water bowls.
On the way to our car, I was holding the leash and he hiked his leg and peed on my leg and my shoe. The lady said that was a good sign. Whiskey was making me his. He liked me.
Fast forward to today...
We recently moved 2 very unique chairs that my mom gave us in front of our big window in the living room.
At first I wasn't sure about it, but now I think they look great there and they do a lot for the room.
The dogs and cats love them there, too.
They can stare out the window, like Whiskey is doing.
A dog's life is so full of hard work. He has to stare out the window for several hours at a time each day.
Is that a squirrel in the front yard?
No. It's not. Yawn.
It's time for my break. Please don't disturb me.
Sometimes one of the cats joins him. Like Mickey the Circus Cat.
It doesn't faze Whiskey.
Sometimes he switches to the other chair.
Why are you taking my picture?
You're such a beautiful dog.
