People often say, “Wow! You’ve really done a great job with him. It must have been hard.” Honestly, over the last year-and-a-half that we’ve been rehabilitating our ex-mill dog, Bill, there have been times when I thought he was never going to become a “dog.” When he sat in his bed for three months and cowered each time I tried to walk him, I thought, “Maybe Bill would be happier with an older person who isn’t active.”
I’m so glad I persevered. Days like today make it all worthwhile. Toby, our foster, opted to stay in the car when we arrived at the dog park. But Bill had a blast! (photo credits: Dennis Duffy. Bill’s got a fan club. I wish my parent’s liked me as much as they like him!).
