My new friend

Meet my new friend, Walter.

He is a "Purple Heart Rescue" dog. (that is the rescue my sister Hallie donated most of her sales from her paintings to). Walter is 11 years old and has a grade 3 heart murmur. He doesn't have a whole lot of time left but that time will be holding more joy and love than he's known his whole life.

You see his first people got him as a puppy and left him outside on a chain all day every day....a neighbor finally called the rescue and they were able to get him out of there but it was 11 years of being on a chain. He has a wonderful home now and is SO loved and his new mom does everything she can to make up for the years of misery he had.

He is the sweetest boy. He gets tired easy and has episodes of syncopy due to his heart but today he had a wonderful time exploring my back yard and even playing with me! You can see how happy he was by the smile on his face.

His buddy Bella came with him and I practiced my Poodle Hurdles.

So glad Walter will experience a loving home and have the chance to romp with doggie friends for the time he has left. A wonderful thing!

Oh, how sweet! I'm glad Walter found his perfect family, even if it was late in life. It looks like He and Sophie really enjoy each other!

It just breaks my heart to hear of dogs without loving homes. I'm so glad he has found a loving family. What a joy!
