It might be a little unorthodox, but I vote this one should go on the 2012 Van's calendar!!

Thumbs up Great Picture

There is no better man than Pete. My wife and I rescued a boxer in our neighborhood with the help of Pete. This dog today would be dead without his help.

Again, I will be 2nd to say, put this in the calendar.
Great Job Pete. Keep up the great work and the stories coming!!

Ugly??...No way, Pete! That is one handsome boy, and I am sure that he will find a great "forever home" with humans that appreciate him.
Great job on this!

Default Ugly??

OK, not RV related, but a fellow VAF'er called a Boxer ugly. Them's fightin' words!!! Here is a photo of mine when he was a baby, ten years ago. How can THAT be ugly???

Chris - I have 2 of them at home - Love them to death - maybe I should have said unconventional beauties rather than ugly!!!

Rick, yeah, he is. He was our stand-in for the six months between when we lost #2 and got #3, Dudley, our current Boxer.

Pete, agreed!

When I retire I hope to sell my -4 and have enough income to purchase a -6 or -7 and then fly Boxer's, or any needy critter, to new and loving homes. Not sure if that could be done in a -4...

OK, enough of the mushy stuff, let's get back to RV's!!!!

Default Suge Update!!

Suge was adopted by the dog groomer that works with the vet that fixed him up - great story all around!

Here is a note from his new family......

Suge is doing fantastic! He is walking more and more on his leg and healing very well. Suge is being a typical puppy and trying to play more than he should, poor baby. We have had some potty training struggles but we have worked through them. He is in love with my 4 year old daughter, Azura. Follows her everywhere, brings her barbies and sleeps with her. It couldn't be a better fit! Suge is on food 3x daily to help him gain weight and will be getting his pin removed next week sometime.
