    DefaultLost 2 dogs last year to cancer so Dexter also rescued me!

    I was so devastated after my loss of my golden of 14 years and her son of 13 years (1/2 lab/golden). Mom Gigi died first then 3 months later I lost her boy Vinny. 2011 was a tough year for our family.

    Another doggie to adopt was on our mind after our major loss although it to be a rescue for sure. We thought we would take much time to find but after a hunt on the internet for a Labrador Retriever I found Dexter a few months after we lost Vinny. The owners kept Mr. Dexter in the backyard without and human contact except for feedings. Dexter did grow up with 2 Rotts so he did have mostly doggie interaction and does well with all dogs today. At first any thing that moved he would get so excited to see we could not control him. He was like a whale jumping up to reach out to get closer to the human or doggie on approach. With much effort we can now get him to sit on command and stay when there are things that excite him. Lots of doggie park visits and walking on a leash and practicing with him got us to gain control of the excitable Mr. Dexter. He is such a smart, loving dog and so very willing to please us. Dexter does not replace my babies in heaven, but I do believe my babies would approve of Dexter in our lives, or maybe my babies helped me find him . Dexter is my own private therapy doggie when I'm in need for a hug!!!
