Loving Louie

 Meet our new guy - Louie.

He's one mess of a dog. Big ears. Scruffy beard. Wiry coat.

And I'm completely in love. It happened in 10 seconds. Seriously.

First I saw this photo online. He was in jail!

We contacted K-9 Lifesavers, the local rescue organization listed on as the group who could bring us "Fonzi." He was living in a high kill shelter in Vidalia, Georgia. K-9 Lifesavers transported this little guy up here and we picked him up at a dog boarding facility in Chester, MD.

From the moment Dennis saw him, he was smitten. But I was just goofy. Really - I couldn't keep my hands off him. He's so squeezable!
look how sweet he was, even on his very first walk - attentive and alert

Dennis has a new best friend.

Most of the photos and videos I took look like this. He's always in motion and he wants to snuff the camera.

Louie has made my heart whole again.

*Big old sigh* Glad your heart is whole again, Mrs. W. So happy to see you go from "down there" to "up here".

What a sweet scruff he is! Very happy for you - and for Louie. How lucky for him to find such a loving home.

Thank goodness, we can sleep tonight, so anxious re how Louie would mesh into the loving Barrow household - frankly, I'm worn out, coming from a pet-run household ;)

Update: Louie and Beans have met. After 1-1/2 days they are getting to know eachother. Yesterday, he walked up and licked her face. Everything is working out beautifully. Other than a little separation anxiety, he's a very good boy.
