McCoy One year home

After our boy Butcher passed, I was looking for a Foxfire dog, spring, summer. whatever. On the Monday before Thanksgiving 2014, months before we were anticipating a new pup, my wife got a call from Michelle. A women had to pass on her commitment for a pup. Did we want the boy? I knew the litter. (Jewelia X Rayden) Pretty much my dream dog (pet).

Of course I said "You bet!" The catch was I had to pick him up by Wednesday.
So... Tuesday afternoon, I hopped in my truck and drove down to Southern OR.
Got up in the AM and got down to Michelle's beautiful property in rural Sunny Valley. Met my boy. Biggest guy in a gorgeous litter. I was so fortunate. I was able to help take his stitches out. He was just 10 weeks old.

We drove home. He is the first pup I have ever owned that slept through his first night . The rest is history. My boy McCoy.... 365 days in his forever home.

I am not sure who's happier.

John or McCoy...

Happy One Year Home! What a great call that would have been, many people would have died for a call like that from Foxfire!

Photos? How do you pronounce that??? I remember the concept, just not the execution. I'll get better. Have to pull one of my bad boy cameras out of storage.

Later.... LOL
