Nancy and I and Tea adopted each other via B.A.R.K and Petfinder in April of 2009. He was called Yosemite by them, and was about 3 years old. Here's a pic:
Nancy and I got Chipotle (Chip) from Buddy Dog in February of 1997. He was about 18 months old and is a Black Labrador Retriever-Chow Chow mix. Chip passed away in the fall of 2008. In his youth, he ran doggy day care for his friends, Calvin and Islay. Here is a picture of Chip.
Here Chip entertains his friends in the January snow. Islay is on the left. She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. She can run very fast. On the right is Calvin. He is a mix of several breeds. He is indefatigable! The only time he ever seems unhappy is when he finishes eating: he always finishes first and gets jealous of the other dogs, still eating. Calvin loves to play catch. Sometimes he even gives the frisbee back so that you can throw it again. But it is best to keep several frisbees around to keep him busy.
Here is Pepper. He is also from Buddy Dog, in January 2000.
Here is the newest member of our family, Peanut. She is from Care and PETsMART, in August 2003. Peanut passed away in the summer of 2008.
Here's another picture of friends at play.
Here are Chip's VA friends, Smithers and Killian with Chip and Nancy on a walk.
