Meet my new doggie!

I'm so excited...we just filled out the paperwork to adopt a 3-year-old boxer mix from the local pound! They call him Bobby but I think we're going to name him Gingerbread....I've never attached a picture to a post but I hope this works....yay! I can't wait to be a dog mom!!

Unfortunately, the 12-year-old beagle we were also going to adopt has already been chosen by someone else! But I'm glad that she's at least going to a good home - the lady that is adopting her only adopts elderly dogs so I hope she'll get the care and love she deserves.

Anyway- I'm so excited that I wanted to share my good news!

Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a beautiful (and lucky!) dog.

Congrats on the new addition.

Congratulations! You made the best choice adopting from the pound. Gingerbread (love the name) says thank you.
I am the recent adoptive mother of a bouncing baby boxer cross.....they are such cute little things. Take a look at my profile....mostly pictures of Stu.  :-[ We changed his name from Cain....which in his case, might have been a better name  ;D
He is almost 6 months old & 50 pounds of pure energy ???  & on Thursday, he will be as neutral as Switzerland....yup, he's getting neutered  ;) ;D
Oh you are going to have such fun :D And don't look at him cuz he'll steal your heart & once that happens, you're doomed ;D

edit-I don't know why but I called your dog "Butterscotch".  ::) Sorry,  I have changed it to "Gingerbread"  :)

Cody told me that he wants to challenge Gingerbo(bb)y to a race up and down the Eastern Seaboard! 

This is so exciting - you'll get outside TONS and have more energy and look at life with more love. Good luck!

Gingerbread is a great name with that colouring, but I betcha it won't be long till it's just "Ginger." Betcha he's full of ginger, too!  ;)
What a lucky dog...and what a lucky family!

You're so right...it probably will be Ginger! Which is the reason why my hubby hasn't completely okayed the name...since it's a boy dog and all.

But since I've always been a "lil dog" person and he's always been a "big dog" person, and I actually told him about Bobby/Gingerbread (he thought I'd want a shih tzu or lhasa apso or chihuahua or something small like that), I think I'll win this one LOL

My hubby is so crazy excited..it's so cute.  ;) We've had a pretty tough year...we've been trying to conceive and it's basically not going to happen (my doc discovered a pituitary tumor which is interfering with my hormones...it's a long boring story, but after much testing, hormone pills, shots, etc., it doesn't appear that I'll be able to conceive)...so anyway, I think a great doggie like Gingerbread will really lift our spirits and give us so much love..and give us someone to give our love to!

Yay! Congratulations on your new lil guy...you are so right about doggies lifting the mood... they are great like that...

What area do you live in...there might be additional rescues in your area...I know my local rescues are always posting dogs on craigslist.com. They get dogs from the pound and have them fostered until someone adopts them...So the adoption fees are not going into anyones pockets or whatever. I think its great that you are looking into older dogs to adopt too. Good luck finding a sister for him!
