It’s Been a Year!


It’s hard to believe that one year ago today, Coby entered our lives. Born on September 11, 2014, Coby wasn’t considered “perfect” in the eyes of the pet stores because he has a luxating patella (moving kneecap). This is very common with small dogs. So, Coby was given up to  a rescue. This may seem like a sad situation, but it was a BLESSING for us. We were the lucky ones to have the opportunity to adopt a precious Yorkshire Terrier…our “C” of the gang.

It was November 26, 2014, when I talked to the founder of Homeward Bound Rescue about another possible adoption. I remember her words to this day, “It’s your lucky day. I just got an adorable Yorkie yesterday. He is neutered and ready to go home with someone”. The next day I picked up Coby on what was suppose to be a two-week trial. I knew from the moment I saw him that he would be ours! Would Artie and Buddy feel the same?

Lots of sniffing happened that first day, and to be honest, it took about two weeks for Artie and Buddy to begin warming up to Coby. Once they warmed up, I knew Coby was HOME!

These were some of the first pictures of them together. It made my heart so happy to see the three of them starting to become “brothers”.  Today, one year later, they are inseparable…they are ABC!!!

The Cuteness of Coby

Coby 1 coby 2Coby is our youngest baby at 6 months today!!!! He has brought so much joy to our lives.  Artie and Buddy are playing again, thanks to Coby! It took them about two weeks to accept Coby but they love him now.  It brings me such happiness to see ABC at play and exercising. If you have one pet, I highly recommend a second for companionship.

We adopted Coby from a rescue called Homeward Bound on January 3, 2015. He is our first rescue. We adopted the other two from friends. No matter which way you adopt, you are giving a dog (or other pet) a much needed loving home.

If you have questions or concerns about adopting another pet, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I would love to help you make a yes or no decision.
