Andy found some “crazy” love in his forever home!
Andy wasn’t his name when he came to CDR. He was named after a character in the Harry Potter series. I wasn’t familiar with that name and didn’t much care for it, so we named him Andy. Nice and short and goes well with Buddy. The Crazyman and I thought that it would be nice for Buddy to have company. Buddy wasn’t too keen on that idea. Andy was given to CDR coz he has very bad seizures and the household was having a difficult time with that. We didn’t care if he had them or not. He had the seizures often for the first month. Then he started to learn to relax and his seizures are now three months apart or more.
We met foster mom Mary in Burlington and picked up Andy. Andy cried and cried and was a stressed out little pup. He barked at the furnace when it went on, he barked at the car door slamming across the street, he barked at all the garbage bags out on the street on garbage day. He barked most of the night for a few weeks. He was very skittish and scared couldn’t touch his tail or his ribs. We got the impression that he was hit too many times or even got a boot in the ribs.
I am his and no one else’s. He follows me everywhere even if it’s from the kitchen sink to the fridge, I should have named him Shadow. Every time we come back from anywhere, even the groomer’s, he’s a more relaxed dog. he finally knows that he’ll be home.
He loves playing with his stuffed moose and knows it by name. He runs upstairs when he knows it’s time for bed and jumps onto the bed for his bed time snack. He sings with the Crazyman. Yup, he’s spoiled and he loves it.
He’s a very good puppy and he’s all mine!!!!!!!
