We would like to introduce to you the newest member of the Wood family.
We devoted eleven years of our lives to loving and making our sweet Moo Bear a priority. When we lost her in December, we truly didn’t think we could ever invite another dog into our lives. Like most fur babies they are just that, an extension of our families. We decided as a family that we would take the next few years to focus on us… continue to renovate our home, travel, and save funds for a rainy day. We had no intention of growing our family until we met Chopper.
A few weeks ago, Jes’ aunt, Jen, sent us a picture of a boxer in need of a home. After seriously considering it, we decided it would just be too difficult to get her from Maryland to Arizona and care for her the way she needed. There are plenty of other animals in need of forever homes right here in our back yards. This triggered something unexpected in us. We started discussing the idea of adopting a dog that needed the love they deserve. The thought went against everything we discussed and agreed upon, but we realized something. We are a dog family and Moo would want us to love and care for another dog like we were able to do for her. So, the search (without a plan) began.
We found a few dogs in need of love and scheduled visits with them. Although they were all absolutely adorable, we weren’t the perfect fit for their needs. We had no money to give and no expectation of bringing a dog home, but Michael asked me if there were any others I wanted to see.
“Well…,” I said with a big smile, “there is this boxer puppy I found on craigslist. He is adorable and has green eyes.”
Michael was hesitant to the entire idea. He wasn’t sure about the time it would require to train a puppy and he wasn’t emotionally ready for a boxer, but he could see the excitement in my eyes so he agreed to go meet him. Twenty minutes later, we were walking up to the sweetest little brindle boxer puppy. He was just six weeks old and had the brightest green eyes I have ever seen.
“Oh boy, how do I say no to that!?” Michael smiled. This sweet little boy kissed my chin and curled up into my arms and honestly, the rest is history. He is now a member of our family and we all just can’t get enough of him.
Below are just a few of my favorite things about Chopper.
