One Year From Today, We Adopted D'Artagnon from the Shelter!!! :dance:
http://s428.photobucket.com/albums/qq4/ ... ody002.jpg

sorry for the pic not showing...the forum keeps giving me an error message, that it can only be 700 pixels high and wide.......but all my pics are set to medium on photobucket for just that reason, being between 2 and 300?????


I knew, for whatever reason, that Dar came into my life for a reason. I won't go into all the 'odd' coincidences and "timing" of every thing, but I knew then, that he needed a "hero's Name. Thus, D'Artagnon....

Needless to Say, Dar and I have spent Most of "my" Free time, alone together. Starting in Early March, that Dog stayed with me all day, every day, throughout the Madness that was My Grief. He Slept with me during the Day, and Played alongside the bench in my yard I laid in while viewing the Cold Winter Months Turn to Spring; Praying, Wailing, Begging, Bargaining, And Laughing With this Pup, who Kept Me Going While the Rest of the Family Were Off at School and Work.

Dar.............I love you..........I have had a lot of animals in my adult life, and I knew from the beginning, that this dog was special. Amanda even noticed it, when she was here late last December, commenting that she had never seen me "like this with any dog".....

Hey Gang.............. :wave2:

Dar is trying to thank you all for his Gotcha-Day-Wishes, but his tongue is buried in a Kong full of frozen Egg-Wash-Oatmeal- Soaked Bread...... :P
