Meet Buckeye!

We have a new member in our family, Buckeye. Bill rescued this guy from the Humane Society 1 1/2 weeks ago. He's a 3 1/2 year old Chocolate lab that is amazingly well trained and well behaved. It's almost shocking actually. He's had a rough time since coming here through. Poor guy came down with a nasty upper respiratory infection. Then he needed to be 'fixed'. Then tested positive for Heartworms and to top it off, a bladder infection.

BUT, he's doing so much better now and bouncing around begging to play ball and go for a walk. He's eating great and fitting right in with the kids and our black lab Truck. Yes, now we have dogs named Buck and Truck. Don't ask... lol.

Off to enjoy another pretty day outside!
