Meet Spencer




Spencer is one of Sophie's puppies. A super couple bought him last year. They don't live very far from us and we have been able to see him a couple of times since he was a baby and went to his new home. Just imagine my delight to come home today to 2 emails from his mommy. It seems Spencer is a big brother now. The young couple has welcomed their first child, a son named Kale. They say Spencer stares at the baby A LOT. But he is also protective of him. He was by far my favorite of the pups with the exception of Roger who didn't make it.

I remember when Spencer was born. He wasn't breathing and it really scared me and Joe. We rubbed and rubbed him to try to stimulate his breathing. That didn't work so we finally got Sophie's attention and she started licking him. He then started to breathe. I really didn't think he would make it but he soon caught and surpassed his litter mates.

As you can see he is very attentive to his new brother. They will be sure to send more pictures as the two "boys" grow up together. I think that is a good thing.

Isn't he a handsome boy? When he was a small puppy he had really droopy eyes, kind of like a basset hound. I was SO tempted to keep him. I am thankful he has a great home.

Thank you amber, I kinda love them too!
