Willy joined our family on June 1, 2012. The first 6 weeks I asked myself several times, "what have you gotten yourself in to?" Up during the night, early in the morning, potty training, chewing, all the things that come along with a new puppy and at our age! It was all worth it. He is a sweet, totally house trained, lovable dog and constant companion. 

Willy had an accident while jumping up very high at our cat. She was on the kitchen counter and he was trying to correct her. He slipped on the tile floor and chipped his hip. To make a very long story short, he ended up having FHO surgery at the end of May. He is still recuperating and hopefully will be able to use his leg again. Meanwhile he does pretty well on three.

A game we used to play to get him to eat.
Two Months Old. His ears finally stood up!

He's decided he likes our food better.

His best friend, Dino.

The hair on his leg is growing back!

Mary, so sorry to hear about Willy's accident, hope he is all better by now, poor little guy. He is such a sweet heart, love his colouring and the sketches you did in Gwenn's class. Hugs to you and Willy, jan aka magenta
