Sometimes Mutts are the Best Dogs

Back when my beloved black Lab, Buster, passed away, we didn’t look for a replacement for quite a while.  We wanted a smaller dog than the 110lb small horse that Buster was.  We looked at breeds, etc. and had made a decision.  So, before we went and picked out a pup, we stopped by the local PetSmart to get some supplies.  That day, the Humane Society of Forsyth County was having a pet adoption day.

While this varied off our carefully planned route, a particular dog, Simon really took a liking to my wife.  We talked about it awhile and talked to the representative about his situation (some previous abuse), house training, etc. and decided to take a little leap of faith.  Because we thought his old name of Simon may retain some feelings from his former family, we decided to name him Petey (as a nickname for Peter and as a reference to the Biblical transformation of Simon Peter).   Since the day we brought him home, he has totally infused himself into our family.  Not only is he a fantastic guard dog, he’s by far the most well-trained member of the household.

So, if you’re in the market for a companion, he/she might be waiting for you right now.
