When I decided to give Rudy a brother, I decided to get a puppy. From now on, I'll do rescue exclusively, but RuDog had some issues that weren't immediately apparent and I was worried about adding a dog with an unknown background to the mix. Anyway, I went to look at a female JRT puppy. When the pups were released, Hank ran over to me right away and sat down in my lap. It was love at first sight, for both of us.

Hank's puppy years were filled with fun and destruction (good bye couch, chairs, pillows, books, remotes, a huge jug of olive oil), a heroin OD (not my fault. Stupid druggies throwing their drugs on the streets in SF!), a broken leg and lots of adventures.

I'm totally a crazy dog person, and I'm completely okay with that! Best training partner in the world. He's always excited to run, doesn't care about the weather or waking up early or where we go. He just wants to run. We could all learn something from the joie de vivre!
Look out for Rudy's special post this October when he turns 8!
Pig ninja power!
