A Puppy Sleepover

This cute little guy is Grady, Ruby's puppy friend from across the hall. These guys like to play out on the grass together and Grady's owner mentioned that he feels so bad because he works all day and this poor little guy is home by himself, with no potty breaks for 8+ hours. Why have a puppy? Since I am home all day I offered to take Grady on our morning walks and to come get him when we go out to play ball. When I went over to get him I found him in this filthy, small room with no food or water. From now on Grady is spending his days at our place. And maybe some of his nights too. His owner went out of town last night and we ended up having Grady sleep over. Chris and I felt like we were hosting a sleepover for young children, with the breaking up of midnight wrestling,and such. I gave Grady some of Ruby's food and he chowed down twice as much as Ruby usually eats in about 30 seconds. I'm growing attached to this little puppy and wish we could adopt him and give him the kind of life he deserves.

Great story about Ruby's friend. He looks like a real sweetheart. The owner isn't very thoughtful, though. Thanks.

I love that you and Chris have become dog people just like us. That is so sad about Grady - you're so sweet for taking care of him. Can't wait for you guys to get back!
