To Walter

Were you around two years ago to remember
this sweet baby boy?
Two years ago this week I discovered him on a rescue site.

And knew instantly he was my dog. 

This is the photo I saw on the site shortly after it posted.
I will still grieving losing Howie and was still very raw,
but Hannah said mom check out these sites.

It was meant to be. I got to him first.

Three weeks later I brought him home

He perched on my shoulder for almost the entire first year

He's getting me through the pandemic isolation
and is my love, never more than a few feet away from me.
Sleeps under my bed covers all night every night,
usually pressed up against my back or leg.

He is incredibly smart.
Seems to understand everything I ask him to do.

Waiting under my makeup table chair.

and is still a weirdo

To Walter
such a blessing.

Walter is such a cutie, and faithful like my Bounce is. Dogs can help save us and help us go on in difficulties. I adopted Bounce ten days after my hubby died in 2016. Sometimes my sons and I tell Bounce "you saved us."

You saved Walter. Walter has saved you. You are both lucky to have each other. I enjoy all the photos of him here and on your IG. Thanks

What a special little guy. we have been "dogless" for several decades now. Still miss our Mini-Dog, a small dachshund, chihuahua, Pomeranian mix.

I remember! You were ready to give up. He is so cute and I'm so glad you found him, or did he find you :-)

I was, and yes, he is a sweetie and such a great story. The weird ones steal hearts and he's no exception. I love Walter's antics, and I agree, you saved each other.
