King Alex

I wanted to get Harry something special for his birthday at the end of the month. I think I succeeded.

Friday, Harry and I adopted King Alex from Lab Rescue North Carolina, which I highly recommend for anyone looking to adopt. We are overjoyed to have our new family member. He has completely changed our lives. Our prince is a big strong guy with a huge heart. He follows us around the house, very curious, afraid he might miss something. He smiles and makes us laugh so we forgive him for trying to “mark” our indoor plants and Harry’s wine rack.

He is all puppy, about 1 to 1.5 yrs. old. I feel every bit the grandma that I am, trying to keep up with his energy level. Alex’s first day with us, he dashed off the deck without touching a step and hurled himself half-way across the yard trying to catch a squirrel. He loves to sniff the air. What stories the breeze must tell.

Since he has the gait of a show dog, I’ve renamed him “King” Alex, a fitting name for such a regal dog. King Alex was rescued from a shelter where he was out of time – slated to get the needle the day after his foster mom took him home. A stray brought in by a kind stranger, Alex was underweight, with heartworms and intestinal parasites, poor guy. He started his new life undergoing the very painful heartworm treatment. Even so, he is still always happy, smiling with his big tongue out and wagging that long tail of his.
