This is our handsome boy, Victor. He came to live with us a bit unexpectedly. After Calvin passed on, we really didn't expect to get another dog so soon. Nilla was acting pretty well considering, but she was pretty unmotivated to do anything. She ate well, and she played, but she just didn't seem to have the energy she once had. We took her to Dogtoberfest to visit her foster mom Jennifer, when we met Victor for the first time. I had read about his dilema on the web site, and you couldn't tell by watching him that he had a really bad broken leg. Look at that face, he is so elegant...
My husband and I drove to Joyce's house to get him, and he was eager to go with us. I know it was a very hard seperation for Joyce and Bryce, but they are good people and knew we would be a great family for Victor. We appreciate their compassion very much.
Victor and Nilla love each other very much. He still likes to crowd in when she is getting attention, but we are working on that. He will sit and down for a treat, and as you can see, Nilla sits a lot so she can get a treat. They snuggle, and play and run in the yard together. It's a good fit all the way around. We love the new addition to our family.
UPDATE!!! I entered VIctor in a contest to be the new poster dog for Take Your Dog To Work Day. Unfortunately he didn't not win poster dog, but he DID make it as a finalist. If you go to www.petsit .com, you should be able to find him. What a lucky guy!
