Our family has been without a dog for almost a year. While we enjoyed the freedom of being able to get up and go when needed, we REALLY missed being greeted at the door by a loving friend when we got home! Rachel left notes around the house for her dad, asking “Daddy, can we please get a puppy?”
It just so happened that within a day or two of the notes, Ron got an email from Chickasaw County S.N.A.P. with this gorgeous fellas picture in it! Our entire family went “awwwwww…..” when seeing this picture.
We went to meet him and we just fell in love! We decided that HE was THE ONE for our family!
When we went to pick him up (his name was Buster at the time), we had to wait a little while. Ethan was almost beside himself with anticipation. He sat right down and petted the dog the whole time we waited. And the dog (formerly known as Buster), stayed right there in the corner of his kennel the entire time.
We can only hope that Moses is just as excited to have US as his family!
He is HOME!
And he is adjusting pretty well to life in our household. He’s high energy (did I mention that already?) We’ve commented more than once that it is like having a toddler around the house again. He definitely takes a lot of our attention, but we are happy to give it.
Look at that beautiful face! He loves his treats, he enjoys taking walks, and he likes to relax outside on the deck while someone reads a book. HE LOVES his toys! We are working on not jumping on people, and we are working hard to get him to walk nicely on a leash. He does tend to run away if he gets outside, so we are also trying to work on “come”. We are all looking forward to being able to play fetch with him and have him actually drop the ball when he gets back to us.

Moses has provided hours of enjoyment, entertainment, and love for our family. We are all looking forward to many more years of love ahead of us!
