He's a rescue dog, and he's been part of the family for the past 7 years. I will never forget the first time I saw him, he came running straight over to me and I instantly fell in love. It's definitely one of my best memories. We took him home with us the same day, and I can't bear to be away from him for too long now!
Like the breed suggests he springs everywhere. We got him when he was still a puppy, and everyone would say "he'll calm down as he gets older" WRONG!! He's got madder, he tears around, he jumps all over the place and leaves hair everywhere he goes!
Not a day goes by when he doesn't make me smile, although when he decides 6am is a good time to wake me up by barking I'm not so happy!
He's given me so many happy memories, and I completely agree that dogs are a (wo)man's best friend!
Let me know about your pets and the happy memories they give you.
