    Hello all. Well the hubby and I decided it was time to get a dog. We went to our local shelter and found this little guy. He is 18 months old and is a chocolate lab/beagle mix. He is AWESOME!!! Great with the cat, great with the kids and also... GREAT WITH THE CHICKENS!! I am sooo happy that he fit right in over here at the FUNNY FARM!!! LOL.

    Hi all, his name is Nelson...we kept the name his original owners gave him. He has been through enough without having his name changed. [​IMG] We have had him for a little over 2 weeks and he is GREAT!! We knew it the second we saw him in the stinky little cage that he was meant to be with us. We didnt even ask to see any other dog...we knew it then and we were right!! I am so happy we decided to adopt. [​IMG]

    Lucky you and Lucky Nelson. We adopted a shelter dog when she was6 months old. Now she is 11. She has had a great life with us. I am sure Nelson will to ( with you)
