Guthrie has gained so much weight. We feed him 3 cups of dry puppy chow, two spoonfuls of wet puppy chow, 2 spoonfuls of whole milk yogurt, and a few dribbles of vegetable oil twice a day. The picture above was taken on 4-27-08 and the picture below on 4-6-08. What a difference 3 weeks and some TLC can make!
Guthrie has a really cool personality. Everyday he surprises me with something new. Yesterday he started drinking from the stream of water as I watered the flowers on the porch.
Guthrie loves to play with Jackson. He they are boxing away.
Guthrie is still looking for a loving home to be his forever home. If you are interested, please let me know!

Guthrie... at first I thought this was an awful name for a dog, and I am still not a huge fan, but...it kinda fits. When you see Guthrie's face, he makes you think that he is a traveling dog, who has seen a lot, knows a lot, and all that he has seen and known was sad. He seems a little depressed to me. So, Guthrie, is a perfect name for this sad little(big) dog. In my mind I can picture Woody Guthrie, in the 30s, playing his guitar on the side of a dusty road, with this old, skinny boxer by his boots, strummin' and singing some folksy blues.
Guthrie is one skinny boy! He needs to be neutered, but he is too skinny for to be put under for surgery. We hope he puts on some pounds really fast! So far, he has shown no signs of food aggression towards people.
So if you are interested (or know someone who is interested) in adopting a sweet boxer boy, let us know ASAP! 'Cause this boy is tired of a-roamin' 'round and wants a home to call his very own! But for now, this boy is thanking his lucky stars he wasn't gassed on Friday!

Wes has become a very active member or Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and a big animal loving softie. BRBR currently has over 90 Boxers waiting to be adopted. (PLUG: BRBR needs great boxer homes, we just saved 5 cute and cuddly pups...you know you would LOVE one!) All of these dogs have no other options. Most of them came from the pound in their very last hour. Sometimes BRBR will get there at 430 and they are scheduled to be euthanized or gassed at 5. Because we are so full at the moment and BRBR is out of foster homes at the moment, Wes signed us up to foster Guthrey who was supposed to be gassed today (Friday) at 5. It is so sad to think that MANY others dogs were gassed today at five, Guthrey was lucky enough to have a local BRBR rep in SC pick him up. We will get him Sunday afternoon. He comes to BRBR needing a lot of TLC, and Wes and I are going to try our best to give it to him! Once I am able to snap a pic of him, I will post it. If you are considering getting a dog, consider adopting a pet from a rescue, like BRBR, before purchasing from a breeder. These dogs are just as special and loving as the "one's with papers." Check out the website today... it is on my "Fun Links" list.
