Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter! 2013 Edition

Nine years ago I adopted Porter, my oldest dog and only son. He was just a pup back then, and even though he’s grown into an adult-sized dog he still has the heart and love of a puppy. Thanks in large part to Sedagive?’s raw diet feeding he’s been happy and active. He plays with […]

Happy birthday to my oldest child Porter, who turned nine years old Sunday. Sunday-ish. I have no idea what day he was born, but I know it’s this month. So happy birthday, good boy! Compared to the other dogs, Porter has had an outstanding year. No major illnesses or injuries, and his raw food diet […]

Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter! 2012 Edition

Big hugs to my oldest dog Porter, whom I adopted eight years ago today. He’s traveled from Maryland to Virginia to Minnesota. He had a several year streak of being a little, uh, plump, but now he’s in fantastic trim. Sedagive? has had him and our other two dogs on a raw diet and boy […]

Happy Birthday, Porter!

Happy birthday to my oldest dog Porter, who turned eight years old on Saturday. Holy crap! I can’t believe it. My three dogs are all getting older, and inching towards double digits. The big news for Porter this year is that he’s gotten back into the lean, hound dog shape of yesteryear. I credit this […]

Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter!

I can’t believe it’s been seven years since I adopted Porter from Homeward Trails. Seven years! I remember sitting in the front driveway of his foster parents’s home and watching Porter and his two siblings play in the yard. I put each of them through a series of personality tests, from snuggling them to seeing […]

Happy Birthday, Porter!

Happy birthday to my buddy Porter, who is six today. Luckily, this was a pretty uneventful year for my little guy. There was a little “snowdog” action during the snow storm, but he didn’t seem to mind that I had to shovel it all. Porter’s weight is still down, and Sedagive? took him for a […]

Happy Adoption Anniversary, Porter!

Happy Adoption Anniversary, Porter!

I can’t believe it’s been five years since I adopted Porter from Homeward Trails. He has been a wonderful companion all of this time. As I added another dog (and then another), he gracefully and gradually slid lower and lower the pack’s totem pole. As the most omega of omega dogs, he is super pleasant […]
