Show and Tail
Please join Angela at West Virginia Treasures and others at her Tuesdays' Show and Tail. Put a story about your pet, a visit to the zoo, or an interesting story about an animal up for us to read and share.
This is an update on our new addition - Disco. We got him for our grandson - we were hoping two things - one that they would bond.
Our hopes were answered there - the two are like brothers now.
My husband and GS took Disco to a dog park by our house.
They are so cute walking together.
The GS really takes good care of him. He walks him. He feeds him. He sleeps with him. The GS is looking at the kids playground. lol
The other hope was about my allergies. My allergies start coming around this time. I'm making a decision not to have allergies! I'm keeping this dog. So far so good. If I can go another four months we will tell the grandson he can keep him. Right now he thinks we're watching him for a friend. It will hurt if Disco goes none the less. I get dermatitis of all things. So we're hoping and praying and assuming - we have the best dog and all will go great!
