I think the dogs were all thinking "what is it, and what have you done??"

Charlie saying 'get away from me kid' Actually, he still says that!
Sammy and Todd, "nice to meet you sir."
Todd to Sammy: "Can we play?"
Of all of the dogs that we had at that time, five of them have passed away. One dog in particular had just come to us a few days before Todd arrived. Her name was Reggie. She had been confiscated by animal control for neglect. That neglect and mistreatment didn't hamper her sweet, kind and gentle spirit. She soon became known as "Momma Reggie" because she took care of Todd like he was her own puppy. Below are my favorite photos from that first day she and Todd met. They had an immediate connection.
When Todd would whine in his crate, she'd stand there and look at me as if to say "we need to do something." She always slept near him.

Todd was followed her everywhere.
We had Reggie through the entire summer. Just as Todd was getting a little more grown up and a little more independent, she left us for the Rainbow Bridge. Her "job" was done... And she did it very well.
Happy third "gotcha day" to Todd, the most unique and spirited member of the Golden Pines Gang! Our lives are a lot more fun and full of laughter because he's part of it!
