Guess who was adopted? GERKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby Ellena » Mon May 11, 2009 4:49 pm

Gerkin is a once in a lifetime dog. He is special in SO many ways, it just took the right family to see it.



Gerkin has been on a trial adoption for a little over a month now, and his family is ready to adopt him!



Gerkin came to us in July of 2006 and now almost three years later, he is finally home!



The first picture I saw of Gerkin.

Image



Gerkin during his evaluation in Ontario by our good friend Emily.

Image



Image



Gerkin's fundraising poster, made by the wonderful Emily

Image



His "Thank you" for donating!

Image



Car ride to the airport

Image



Checking himself in at the airport, he was happy to come meet us!

Image



Happy boy

Image



First day at home with me

Image



First bath

Image



Sleepytime for a dog who had a long day of travel.

Image



Photoshoot that became our logo at one time

Image



One of my favorite pictures

Image



Became a poster, again thanks to Emily

Image



He lives up to his name!

Image



Playing peek-a-boo out the playhouse window

Image



He loves the snow

Image



Loves loves the snow

Image



and his best friend, Moxie

Image



Double sit

Image



He loves his Jolly Ball

Image



So much that he always did this to poor Moxie

Image



Thank you to Josh Alsberg for this stunning photo

Image



He loves going to the river...

Image



Image



and dragging huge logs out of the water!

Image



Image



Double sit with Moxie

Image



He loved rough-housing with "dad"

Image



I still say he has the best smile....

Image



and the most intense gaze

Image



He loved kissing Gavin

Image



Did I mention he LOVES his Jolly Ball?

Image



He has put up with being on our Christmas Card for three years...

Image



Image



Image



He got his TT last year...

Image









I could go on forever and ever with the Gerkin pictures and how much this dog means to me and us all at PNWPBR, but I think you get the point.







GOOD LUCK GERKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAY for Gerkin!!!!!!!

He's the one that came in at the same time as Pear, right?

That's such wonderful news!!


ps- that group photo... the black dog sitting bottom row (the only one) with the red Collar on.... he looks EXACTLY like Nikki's Toda. He seriously has an identical face/ears/expression... that's crazy!

That has got to be the luckiest family ever, to end up adopting Gerkin. I'll bet they know just how lucky they are too.

Congrats Gerkin!
