well, okay, the scruffnuts in this blog entry aren’t odd … but rather, this is just an odd assortment of scruffnuts we’ve shared on the scruffy dog facebook page … along with a few shots of resident scruffy merrick. and yes, he is odd.
here’s the goober at his stylin’ best … donning his new Angry Birds hat. (well, honestly, it’s not his but rather my partner’s … but i couldn’t resist). this shot was taken for the ‘hat challenge’ for the 52 Weeks for Dogs group on flickr. i founded the group four years ago and it’s still one of the places to be on flickr.
Deb and i shared numerous emails about the loss, about moving on, about honoring Zoe’s memory by finding room in her heart for another. Deb fostered this special boy Marty, and i have to admit, from the moment she wrote me about her new foster and sent me a photo, i kinda figured Marty was going to be her dog.
but like most happy endings, the start wasn’t great. Marty was found on the side of the road in winter. it appeared he had been strangled and left for dead, and this has affected his head control and ability to control his limbs. it is even suspected that his eye sight may also be compromised. but of course, Marty has no idea he’s a special needs boy!
and Diesel is a wonderful example of his breed … in fact, he exceeded anything i would have expected from a wheaten, being a terrier breed. he is such a poser and a consummate model, whether it’s showing off his ‘high five’ …
and here we have the many expressions of Brody. i adore this little scruffnut, but in spite of my pleading, he has already been promised to someone else if anything were to happen to his mom.
here we have the handsome Ben, adopted from the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society.
i hope you enjoyed this variety-pack of scruffnuts … just a few of the fabulous faces from our fantastic summer and fall. if you want to see these images ‘hot off the press’ and keep up with the up-to-the-minute goings-on around here at scruffy dog headquarters, consider following the SDP facebook page. there’s always a lot going on!
