Little brother

Cowboy is a year old this month. This is sort of a birthday story.

He arrived here in August as a foster care tryout. We decided he should stay.

Here are some snapshots from his first seven months at dream ranch. And thanks to our neighbor Lori for the nice shot on the cover and the one lower of me texting.

⇓ Sickly and scrawny at the start, but displayed early interest in shoes. ⇓

  1. Hola John,
    Cowboy is indeed a lucky dog. I’m most anxious to meet you both. Heartfelt thanks for helping mi esposa… especially with the the toilet thing. (Really sorry to have missed that!)
    Best,
    Bob Murphy
