Well, my Mom stayed behind with Wild Boy Wyatt, and she's the videographer in the family. No videos here. Drats!

I just read this from beginning to end and want to go back and do it again...you are all hereos who conspired to bring Miles to his forever home...what a story....what a face...what a wonderful dog  going to a wonderful home and it is all wonderful wonderful (the songs are starting and the dancers are coming from stage right)

 

for those who posted about getting the new puppies or a new dog...I am going through that now...feeling like maybe it was too soon and I was disloyal to Magic's memory...a lot of that is the puppyhood I think  (boy Dawn, how lucky are you to get this well behaved adult!!)...I went from a 17 year old kitty and 11 year old dog who knew the rules, the routines, would never dream of pottying in the house and had never seen a crate....now I have BABIES who do all of that!!

 

This is the best story ever.....just the best.  happy happy tears for you

Here's the first video of when I "met" Miles for the first time in Reno.  I have more to share, but the local CBS affiliate KOVR is coming in 10 minutes to do a news story on him!  I will post more later.

 Rottie Raven, osteosarcoma at 8-1/2 years old, amputation in October '09 and in February '10 due to liver mets he went back to heaven where he came from.  raven.tripawds.com

Now I have Miles, rottie mix amputee from a shelter and traveled 1500 miles to find his way here through the Rescue Railroad thanks to tripawds.com.  miles.tripawds.com

NOTE: CBS 13 in Sacramento has posted their news segment video featuring Miles and Dawn. Great feature, even if they do start it off by calling Miles a "disabled" dog.

Wow, what a great uplifting story. Miles sure does looks like a sweet boy and Dawn, you look so happy.

This story is special enough for the morning new programs.....quick, call Harry Smith! Or is it Katie Couric who does the segment called "everyone has a story". This could definitely go national!
