And so it begins... my life as a Doodle Daddy.

Brody came to his new forever home today. To get prepared, I went shopping for my new pal. We got him his bed, and some bowls on an elevated wrought iron stand, a Harley Davidson "Bad To The Bone" matching collar and leash set and of course, TOYS! YAHOO!

Jackie came to our home and met my wife and kids, and introduced us to our new dude... I mean Dood.

As luck would have it, my in-laws came over so the house was packed, and Ol' Brody-Bones had lots of new sights to see and smells to sniff. My in-laws brought him a new ball which he quickly ravaged like a plundering pirate.

To say that we clicked instantly would be an understatement. My boy Brody was happy to be here, and we are so very blessed to have him.

Brody and I took our first (and second) walks together for about an hour a piece.... in the rain, and Brody was so excited to investigate his new environment. We came home, toweled off, and enjoyed a treat for at least doing number one. We'll have to work on number two in the morning.

As for now, he has his cortisone cream on his tummy, and it's wrapped up nicely in his Jimmy Hendrix T-shirt, and my pal Brody is as happy as a clam.

Let the games BEGIN!

Jill, A friend found Brody for me on Petfinder. Brody was listed here at the DRRC. I filled out the app, and was approved, and the brodymeister has his forever home. It was FAST. The timing was perfect.

I suggest you fill out apps with local shelters ahead of time, and when they get a doodle, you are already on file.

You'll be amazed at all those tiny milestones, Kevin. Things that other dog owners take for granted are special firsts for a rescued doodle. I am so glad I thought with my gut. We made the right decision. Keep enjoying those successes.

Thanks Joanne. Honestly, I didn't think I had a snowball's chance in H - E - double hockey sticks of getting Mr. Brody, so I had feelers out for other dogs. I guess that it was meant to be. My wife Veronica and I both even had dreams about him while we were waiting to hear. He's a good ol' boy.

We took him for a car ride today. He was afraid to get in the van. Poor boy; every car ride he's had in his life was traumatic. He went to a home that he didn't get proper care, then he went to a stranger's home... he got shaved down, then he got snipped. he got in the car again and came to our home... we're strangers to him. So poor ol' Brody-boy didn't want to get in the car with us. He must have thought the worst.

We went to PetGoods and we got him his food, and a treat and he sniffed around and made some doggy friends. He must have been sooo relieved to not be transferred to someone else. We went back to the car and he hopped right in without a second thought.

I was so proud of my dude..... I mean dood.

Aww... Brody is so lucky to have you, and you all are so lucky to have him! It will be fun to watch and learn as you get to know each other. :)
