A story of two dogs so different in breed and size – both considered “rejects” by some – and their adoption into a new home. It is also the tale of challenges, unconditional love, patience, giving, happiness, and the friendship of the owners of two furry “kids”. These are true tales and are meant as encouragement and support to anyone thinking about adopting a new dog into their life. While we have found happiness with our choices, and giving these dogs a new lease on life, it has not come without its challenges and frustration. Our advice: Hang in there! The rewards will come if you are willing to love and open your heart and allow your new friend to take a spot in it… Just make sure to tell him to “stay!”

Harper, the rescue puppy, was the inspiration of this book. As he came into our family his impossible puppy behavior quickly became a source of frustration. Doubts and regret started to creep up leaving us wondering if it was a smart choice to adopt again. With love, compassion and patience ultimately Harper and his human family overcame the obstacles of raising a puppy.
Tomorrow is adoption day! I can hardly wait! And I am prepared! Everything this little pup would need was already in the house waiting for him. From food and bowls to the biggest softest dog bed and a number of toys. And not to forget – piddle pads and a gate. I had a plan! It would be great! The opinions on piddle pads and gates vary and some recommend kennels. I believed that gating off the kitchen area and letting the kitchen be the puppy’s “kennel” would work just fine. Another sleepless night ahead of me, the hands of time moving way to slow as I lay awake. Whoever said counting sheep will help has never expected a new puppy with such intensity as I! Why was my husband laying next to me lost in peaceful slumber and snoring? Tomorrow we would pick up our new family member. How dare he?
