Two years ago today...

we found this mess of a dog on the side of the road. His body was mangled, but worse than that, his spirit was broken. If his scars could talk...what a story they would tell.
We named him Ralphie and began the long, hard task of nursing him back to health.

One (medically necessary) tail docking, a severe case of heartworms, and countless training classes later, Ralphie is an AKC Canine Good Citizen and the perfect addition to our already crazy family.
Ralphie is currently training in Rally Obedience and is working toward his Therapy Dog certification. He's also Sarah's best friend.
We love you big Ralph and can't imagine our lives without you!

I can't believe it has been two years! Happy Gotcha Day, Ralphie!

Wow, hard to believe it's been two years already! I found the Nest right after you guys had gotten him. He's come such a long ways and is such a good boy! So glad he found your family. Of course he's Sarah's best friend...why wouldn't he be!

That picture of him with the tie will always be my favorite.

:( Seriously, had tears in my eyes seeing Ralphie like that, so glad you found him and showed him how great life can be!
