A boy and his dog
Living in the Bay Area, finding a place to live that allows a dog over 25 Lbs that is in our price range is nearly impossible. Therefore when we needed to make a speedy move up here last fall we needed to leave our dog with Chris's parents, down in SLO. Now don't feel bad for us, or the dog, as he is living in English Cocker heaven with Chris's Mom who breeds and trains them as a love and hobby. She has taken Dusty on as an obedience dog and has been cleaning up at dog shows with him all over CA. So when we heard that he would be nearby (Pleasanton) for a show we scooted on over for a visit. As you can see, both Dusty and Chris were thrilled to see one another. Many scratches and cuddles were shared, walks were had, and Dusty marked us both with several slobber 'trails' on shirt sleeves and pants legs. Hopefully in the spring or summer next year we will find a reasonable place in the area to live that will allow us to have Dusty permanently living with us. Until then we will happily share 'custody' and visit him in SLO.
