Big thank you to all moms work peeps for looking after me today 🥰 sorry for the poo stain on your leg uncle mervus @m.xc96 and the big pee in the office @jadelouisebow here’s a cute picture to remember me as a saint 😇😇😇 .
It’s Flapjack’s 10 year adoptaversary! He was adopted through PRoNE, the same as our 1st pug, Cosmo. We drove to the heart of Vermont & met his saving grace foster mom. At just 9 months old, he was brought to a vet by a "breeder" that wanted him euthanized because he could no longer be sold. "What makes that so?" you ask. One of his eyes was perforated after a tussle with a larger dog in a kennel. He had the injury for ~3 days before they did anything for him! The vet said he would not do that to a perfectly good puppy & called the foster mom knowing she was involved with the rescue. The group took custody of the sweet little pup & gave him much needed vetting & TLC.
He had no name & birthday was sometime in March according to the people surrendering him. Foster mom named him Joseph & gave him a loving home as he healed.
We knew Joseph wasn't the right name for him. On the drive home we tossed around ideas. It was important to honor his Vermont roots. I start thinking about food & what goes with Vermonts most famous food product. Pancake didn't quite do it. Flapjack did & the family agreed that was to be his name. It's as ridiculously weird & funny as he is.
One year he got to be in a kids Summer Shakespeare performance of Midsummers Night Dream with DD being Robin Starveling.
He's such a sweet dog & I'm so glad he's ours. His enthusiastic joy when we return home. His intense stare down when he knows it's feeding time. The pinball effect car rides have on him (which window first- nope all of them). Barking at other animals on TV real or cartoon. I love his bark- it's almost like a howl at the moon. The more excited he is the more he howls.
