Hi! I’m Rex.
I love humans, kitties, toast and snuggles.
I walk well on my leash, I love kids and I hardly ever bark. I don’t jump up on anyone and I try hard to be on my best behaviour. I really try to be a good boy.
But can you believe somebody didn’t want me? I don’t know what I did wrong…
Maybe it’s because I’m middle aged. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit overweight. Or maybe it’s because my family had to move to a place that didn’t let dogs live there too. I’m not even sure if Rex is my real name.
I’m so happy that some nice people came by one day to take me out of the shelter I was living. The nice people took me on a long road trip to a place called Nova Scotia. They gave me hugs and kisses and lots of scratches behind my ears. I heard them say that if they hadn’t taken me that day, I may not have made it out of that place alive.
They told me they were going to find me a new family, a family that would love me forever. They told me I was going to have a good life. I was so happy to be with the nice people that I rested my heard on their laps for the whole 15 hour drive home.
I wonder what happened to the friends I had to leave behind?
I guess I’ll never know what happened to them. I hope they found some nice people to help them out. I hope they find some special humans who can speak up and say things like “it’s not alright to abandon your dog,” and “it’s not alright to hit your dog;” because it’s not.
Because we can’t talk, you know.
I’m a lucky dog, but I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for some very special people at Cool Dog Rescue. You should check them out, they’re pretty special. Because of them, I get to play outside every day. I don’t have to live in a cage anymore. And I have a family who is going to love me forever. That’s all I really wanted.
So that’s Rex. This beautiful boy has been staying with us since Friday, and we are steps away from signing his adoption papers. Every time I look at him, I just can’t believe that for whatever reason, somebody didn’t want him. He’s been such a sweet boy and we are happy he will be joining our family. The kids love him, we love him, and the cat tolerates him – an almost perfect combination 🙂 A big thanks to Cool Dog Rescue for hooking us up with this awesome dude. Please check them out on Facebook for full details on what they do.
Clearly, it’s been a busy week around here! Summer is in full swing, I know this by looking at the calendar. There is something almost every day. I’m tired just thinking about it.
The boys are loving it though. I really just wish we could keep pants on them…
Obviously, that is asking too much, and I’m just going to have to get used to summers full of pants-less, shoe-less boys! Oh well, at least they’re keeping their underwear/diapers on for now 🙂
I’m also super happy to introduce a new company to the blog this week! Please welcome Paula George to our list of lovely sponsors. Paula is a Scentsy rep, and if you haven’t heard of this company yet, get ready to fall in love.
