I was about 4 years old when I got here, so that's how old I am in my puppy pix! I shared a few of those early photos with you in my "Hi Everybody! I'm Home!" post, along with my adoption story. Here's a picture of me and Amber from that same first family walk we took!
I don't look too bad... not like Zim was when he got here, that's for sure! But I didn't have good muscle tone and was a bit underweight. I was in need of good nutrition and exercise! One of the things Mom supplemented our Supper-Dupper with was SALMON! Oh, sweet salmon! I'd never had any before - here I am cleaning out my first bowl full. I had to hold it still with my paw so I could lick out every last little shred of that yummy fish!
But really.... if you want to know what I probably looked like as a wee boy, go back to this post and click on my twin brother of a different mother Harley's dogster page! There are a couple puppy pix of him there and seeing as how we look so much alike NOW... there's a good chance we looked alike as little guys, too!
In my "Adopt-a-Dave" post a couple months ago, I posted a picture from when I first got here - all of us at one of my first Banana Formations! Woo. Zim really helped me out there. He's a very good Drill Sergeant. Click that link and check it out!
Here's a good shot of me smiling once I came home:
I look very happy, don't I? I was! And I am!
As Ammy mentioned in her "How We All Got Here" post, once I got here (about 5 months after Zim!), I took it upon myself to teach Zim how to play. (Stormy taught him the rules and Ammy taught him how to trust and love!) Our play got the little guy really tired - and for some reason, that pleased Mom and Dad. Go figure! Here we are, after a rousing play session:
I could barely keep my baby blues open! In fact, it's about time for my morning nap now, so I'd best get to it. Hope you enjoyed my puppy pix!
