I love that you’ve named him JOE!! It just fits!! It sounds like the name of someone whonwoukd be a good friend…a good pal…a best bud. Someone you just enjoy hanging out with. Kind of like the name “Ted”!

I’m wondering if you would consider bringing him to the east coast Tripawd party Memorial Day weekend so we could meet him (and you, of course)….and thru you, Sweet Ted.
Nitro 11 1/2 yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms. Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

Congrats on the new baby. And best of the luck with the puppy energy. We seem to be just a bit of you with all of these darn milestones: Milo’s diagnosis, amputation (July), bridge (Oct 6… sigh), and new baby (Halloween.)
It was awfully soon — far sooner than we planned — but she’s been the best medicine for us. Like Joe, she’s black, black, black — deep dark eyes — and so hard to photograph! Cute as a button, which is a good thing, otherwise the loss of shoes and the chasing “games” every time she subjects us to when she steals something off a nightstand or table wouldn’t be so manageable.
It’s so exciting. We’re so happy for you! Cultivate that potential!
