Introducing Mr. Cool Hand Luke

I know everyone has been anxiously awaiting to hear how I'm doing. Welcome to my blog... My name is Cool Hand Luke but you can call me Lukey for short. I want to thank my foster mom, Auntie Laurie, for selecting such a great name and happy my new forever parents kept it. I wasn't too kean on Roonie and couldn't handle a 4th name
I've adjusted very well in my new forever home and my new family is surprised I have not had one accident in the two weeks I've been here. Trying to be extra good so I can stay. My brother Tucker (he's a Papillion) and I are new best buds. We play tug of war, steal the toy and who can collect the most toys and keep the all around us. You'll see a picture of me with 3 bones and 1 toy and Tucker has 1. My sister Bella- a hav like me- prefers to be Queen and watches us. She doesn't like tug of war. Once in awhile she will jump into the action but quickly jumps back up high to watch our antics. She is happy I love to run in the snow. I'll post the picture of us doing zoomies in the back yard. Tucker doen't like the snow at all.

OK Lukey I think they got it. My turn. As you may all recall from Laurie's original posting Lukey was afraid and shy with men but has adjusted very well here. Lukey loves Mark and our grandson Ethan. We still have a long road ahead of us. Our first walk outside on leash revealed a scared little guy. We got us one house away. Every noise or dog bark had him scared to death. Not looking forward to the 4th of July. But with persistance, lots of love and positive reenforcement he will become a well balanced dog. Or so Cesar Milan tells us.

Bottom line we love this little guy with all our heats and welcome him into our forever home. As our 3 children pointed out to us we are definately empty nesters who miss our children otherwise we would not have rescued 3 more children. We all our looking forward to visits to our beach house and running -make that doing zoomies- on the sand.

Laurie, we can not thank you enough for the love and dedication to all your rescues and especially for choosing us as Lukey's new forever parents.

That last picture is a hoot, the look on Tuckers face like he's ready to run over and steal one of those bones haha. Congrats on your new boy Luke, he is a doll.

Glad to hear Lukey is fitting in so well. I hope you can bring all 3 of your canine kids for our novice grooming lesson!
