2011, Day 312 - New baby

Today was a day of adventure!  I woke up early while most of the city was still asleep so that I could get my dogs walked and fed and then I was out the door headed north.  My destination was just shy of Seattle; I volunteer with a greyhound adoption group and I had a special delivery to collect, a sweet nineteen-month-old boy named Bones.  After about ten minutes of helping me navigate and a couple failed attempts to sit in the passenger seat my fuzzy bundle of joy was snoozing contentedly on the three hour drive to Portland.

His new family hadn't met him yet so we made a brief stop so they could get acquainted.  Bones, whose name will be Dawson, is such a happy boy.  His tail never stops wagging and he is insatiably curious.  He is an ideal compliment to his soon-to-be brother Preston who is rather shy and cautious.  Unfortunately he isn't ready to go home yet, Dawson needs to go to the vet for a small surgery (snip snip) and when he is healed (and his new family is done travelling for work) he will make the trip to his new swanky home where he will start life as a city boy.

Congratulation J, Garrison, Constance, Preston, and, most of all, Dawson!  Below is Dawson and Dawson with his new daddy J.
