Parker's first night with us had him huddled in the corner of the bathroom, daring anyone to come near him.
Brazos and Parker. You can see that he was consoled by having a dog friend.
Ruger and Parker. These two could play all day long.
I hope all is very well. I wanted to touch base since it is almost exactly six months since I adopted Parker. (You made the drive to Fort Worth on Sunday, Dec 1st to drop him off and Jun 1st is days away)
First, I attached a handful of pic’s of Parker to share. He is really become a great looking dog. FYI, some of the pic’s also have (his brother) Ace in them, which is also a rescue that Annie has had for roughly 8 years. Annie and I both believe Ace played a big part in Parker’s success.
Second, I wanted to let you know how amazingly well Parker is doing. After months of initial struggles, he finally turned the corner and seems to be maturing and settling in so very well. Parker is extremely smart, good sense of following rules, and is quite the entertainer. He certainly enjoys being the center of attention and we enjoy the laughs. We still have work to-do mostly around him being more comfortable around new people as well as letting us invade his personal space for regular brushings, nail clippings, and vet apt. At this point, I am confident those last challenges will come in time.
Thanks for letting me share. I could go on all day on how he has improved and his successes. In reflection, Parker literally went from a dog “is he gong to make it living with us” to “this is the best thing that has happen to us”.
I hope you have a nice Memorial Day and enjoy Parker’s success story. It all started with you initially saving him and then allowing us the opportunity to enjoy this very incredible dog. (PS, I can send more Pic’s if you want but I kept it at four.)
Brian, Annie and Erica
