How one pup found his way home...

So a long, long time ago before the DOHs knew anything about puppy mills and such, DOH#2 dragged DOH#1 into a pet store to "just look" at the puppies. Now seeing as DOH#2's birthday was  days away, she had planned on going to the animal shelter and picking up a pup there as a present to herself. Well as they are looking over the cute little balls of fluff in the pet store DOH#1 spots me. I was lying there sleeping...minding my own business, but somehow he became enamored of me. He dragged DOH#2 over to have a look at me and though she later rescinded this...she wasn't all that impressed. Still DOH#1 insisted on getting me out to play with and he went in search of a clerk to do just that. Well let me tell ya, anyone stuck in a  crate for as long as I was, becomes a live wire when finally freed! DOH#1 was already hooked, now to get at DOH#2...but how?! Well thankfully, the clerk came to my rescue on this see I was a price reduced in no one wanted me. I'd been there 6 months already and the next week I was scheduled to be put down if someone didn't buy me. Though looking back now, DOH#2 doesn't know if this was just some sales pitch, she couldn't let that happen to a perfectly good pup and so a little cash later and I was sprung to my furever home. I haven't looked back since and neither of my DOHs have ever had any regrets either. And that my dear pups and puppettes is how I...the great Bronson(yes, named after Charles Bronson...thanks to DOH#1) became one of the best things to ever happen to the DOHs!


  1. Hi....thank you for visiting us, we like new friends....and you live in Virginia too!

    You are both cuties, according to Teka.


  2. Great story, Bronson. We bet DOH #2 is glad she finally came around to DOH #1's way of thinking.

  6. What a great story. We're so glad that you got picked and found tyour forever home. Thank you for commenting on our blog. It's great to meet you!

  7. Wow, we have a similar story. Mom and Dogdad stopped into a pet store just to look (before they really knew all the terrible things about how pet stores get their puppies), saw me (Jake), and had the store owner take me out of the cage. He put me into an octagonal pen with lots of shredded paper. While the humans oohed and awed at my cuteness, I paid them no attention, busy playing with the paper. But it was love at first sight and that was almost ten years ago!!!

    My brother, Just Harry, was rescued after he was abandoned -- but we think he too came via the puppy mill-pet store trail.

    Gotta say though, as much as we hate puppy mills, we hate to think of the innocent pups in pet stores being put to sleep if no one buys them. One of those Catch 22 deals, right?

    Thanks for visiting our blog -- and stay warm!!!

    Wirey woofs,
