Happy Gotcha Day, Falcor

On this day in 2014 we got Falcor from our apartment manager who was moving and didn't want her 5 month old puppy anymore. Ken already loved the dog and had been asking the manager if he could have the dog for a while because she and her husband weren't treating him well. 

This is the dog pen that Falcor spent his first 5 months in. The manager said he was too hyper to let out so she had him in this all the time. Every time Ken or anyone went into her office, the dog was always in this so when she gave him to us she also gave this dog pen to us and we just used it at night until he was potty trained. He wasn't house trained and had never walked on a leash before we got him. He was scared of everything and we suspect that he was abused since he always acted so scared and would start screaming when he saw a belt, broom or shoe. 

He's a happy dog now and doesn't act the way he did when we first got him. He isn't scared of us anymore and loves going for walks, rides and getting spoiled. My daughter took him to Petsmart and bought him a shirt and a toy and then took him to Starbucks for some whip cream. lol 

Falcor is now 3 1/2 years old and still acts like a puppy full of energy always wanting to play. 

He likes it when some of the neighborhood dogs come over for a visit. He gets along with other little dogs. 

He loves going for a walk now. He's much happier now than he was when we first got him. I'm glad we had the chance to get him.

Happy gotcha day, Falcor.

Happy Raturday!

All of the rats in today's Happy Raturday post are pictures of rats I've had in the past. Enjoy!

"This spider is almost as big as I am"

"I vant to suck your blood! Or a jelly filled donut, I'm really not picky."

"I think that pumpkin makes my butt look big."

"You're hair would make a nice orange coat."

"If I stand really still, maybe the spider won't bite me."

"What a rip off, it's not even a real pumpkin!"

Happy Halloween!
