It started in 2007 with Mr. Big, a pure bred Rat Terrier who showed up in our yard on the Fourth of July. We searched for months to find his owners but soon came to realize that he was probably unwanted due to some emotion problems. His healing was drastically helped in 2008 by a half Jack half greyhound puppy we named Scully. At 10:PM one night my daughter called me up begging to take a puppy her co-worker was taking to the pound the next morning. She was only 4 months old and a roly-poly ball of energy. Next came Mini in 2011, she was at a rescue and featured on the front page of the local newspaper and yet no one else responded to her little terrier Corgi mix face. She is the sweetest girl I have ever known. When I saw Max also in 2011 on the petfinder site I had to get him even though he was in another state. He was another pure bred Rattie (a Decker) with severe emotional problems. Our newest baby is Hurley, a little bit terrier and a lot of everything else, again a petfinder find in 2012. These five have become our children. I can’t imagine life without any one of them. They have given us so much. It amazes me that these were dogs no one wanted. Each one of them is a piece of my heart.
