It was one of those moments when
you just know you have to have something. That's what happened
when I saw Albert. I make it a habit to check the local humane
society web page on a regular basis. I usually end up working
with a good number of the dogs adopted when their families
call for help with training.
Now I have never been one to encourage anyone to make a decision
to add a pet to there home without a tremendous amout of thought
and discussion ahead of time.
Over the years I have seen a few dogs on the shelter web
site that really pulled at my heart strings but I knew that
it wasn't the right time to add another dog to the family.
However when I saw Albert on the web site I had been looking
into rescue sites of a few different breeds. Something about
him made me realize he was the one.
He of'course had a lot that was going to be expected from
him. I needed a dog that could be reliably trained, certified
as a Therapy dog and be a demo dog in training class every
week. The absolute most important thing he needed was a great
attitude and to love everyone. I figured if he had a few undesirable
behaviors we would just work through them.
We figured that Albert was about a year and we brought him
home on Oct.21 so this is now his birthday.
