Hmmm, looks like Chance picked my son over me!

What is UP with this??!! My son Matt likes animals, don't get me wrong, but he is the type who can live without them just fine.
Chance went gaga over him. Follows him everywhere and then picked up one of the toys I had bought and basically threw it at Matt so he'd play.
They just got done playing here as you can see Chance's tongue is hanging out.
As for wanting to stay outside in the snow, that didn't last long. Chance does his business and then comes right back in. However, the little stink pot learned REALLY quick where I keep his treats on the counter and runs straight for them when he comes back in and does a dance until I grab him one.
Hey, that is why I bought them, to reward him.

Oh I must have missed a post some where. I take it Chance is his new name? He looks very happy in the picture.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.

Sounds like you found the perfect dog!! I can't wait to see him after he's had a bath and brush- love his coat. And I bet he'll smell a lot better

Just look at his tail wagging--it's a blur! Sometimes dogs only like one member of the family and barely tolerate the others, and it can be hard to manage them. Sounds like Chance, however, is going to be a pleasure to have around other people. Somehow, in spite of his past, he is such a loving dog! You two were surely fortunate to find each other. He's lovely to look at now--can't wait to see him after a bath and a session with a brush and a comb.

I think Chance has so much love to give he is going to shower all of his new family with it. He has probably been waiting a long time for someone to love and for someone to love him back! And I am so glad it was you he picked! Like others, I can't wait to see post grooming pics and look forward to many more pictures of him and your family. Whatever you do, don't leave this board so we can no longer follow Chance and you! I think we have all become very attached to him and your extremely kind heart in the last few days. At least I know I have!!
