Photo of The Week 3-28-2011 - Happy Marvelous Monday Dog Lovers!
According to my sweet dog Lexi it is Marvelous Monday so she wanted to make sure I shared this story of her canine cousins. These are photos of my beautiful niece Lisa with her black and tan coon hound dog puppy Greta. This was taken eight months ago when Greta was a puppy. Greta has such a great personality that Lisa decided when she was back in South Dakota a few weeks ago she would stop at the same ranch where she had gotten her pup Greta to see if they might get another pup from the same litter. The last time they were in South Dakota there was three puppies from Greta's litter remaining. What she discovered was there was one puppy left although he was almost full grown and he was 11 months old. He was being housed outside in a kennel in the harsh winter of South Dakota (it can sometimes be -20 degrees). He was not trained or socialized and pretty skinny. Now he lives with my niece, her 4 other dogs and her sweet dog loving husband-to-be Brian. They named him Henry. I am pretty sure Henry just won the dog lottery. When it comes to her dogs, Lisa is just like me because she considers them to be her children and she loves them dearly. Below is a new photo of Greta, Lisa and Henry. They all look great in the color red. Little fashionistas!
