Today I was looking through our Christmas pictures and discovered this sweet picture of Archie which was taken on Christmas morning. He made me laugh for he was the first one up and under the tree.
I started thinking about last Christmas and at that time Archie was not in our lives. We were not even considering getting another family pet for we already had three great dogs and a cat.
It is amazing how things happen and how our lives change and are impacted by many wonderful things. For us this happened with Archie. He was found wandering our neighborhood on one of the worst snow days last January 2014. No collar, afraid to allow anyone to get very close, super thin and limping really bad.
After hours of work and persuasion I was able to get him into the warmth and safety of our garage.
Here we are almost a year later and he is now a big part of our family.
Last Christmas I have no idea where he was but this year I can truly say that Archie got his wish. A furever loving home for Christmas.
Rescued animals are the best. Open your heart and home.
