His escape, my escape

Cole

My beautiful boy Cole. He was rescued from a puppy mill and that was his escape. He was two months old and had never walked but now he can run.

Now he is my escape – every night he lies on the floor next to my bed and waits until I find sleep before leaving the room. My faithful friend.

I was inspired by this photo challenge.

  3. Awe, what a beauty! My cat has been a much needed cuddly ball of support for me when I’m having a tough time, almost 16 years that she’s been by my side!

    I just spoke with Sandy from the ILC Foundation and she is eager to get in touch with you and help you get connected to the right/best EDS doctors (her words! 🙂 ). Her email is sandy@theilcfoundation.org and if facebook is a better option for you her’s is https://www.facebook.com/sandy.lobovskysmeenk

    This is a link to the foundation itself http://www.theilcfoundation.org/
    ILC stands for “improving the lives of children” and it aims to connect young people with medical problems and pain to medical services as well as emotional and peer support (for the families too).

    • Pets are important to us! I’m so grateful they are here for us and I’m sure their presence made a make difference during the worst moments. We also have Hailey who is a rottweiler x German S.

      Thank you for the connection with Sandy. 🙂

  4. I used to have a white German Shepherd and I would love to have another one. We used to have a black shepherd in the neighborhood I grew up in. His name was Butch and he was such a sweet dog. He looked a lot like Cole, only much thinner and lankier. Definitely my favorite breed (I’ve had three shepherds)!

    • Cole was very skinny until most recently. I think my mom over fed him! lol

      We also have another one, she’s a rott x shepherd and I find that they form a pack which makes it difficult. Cole is very nervous probably because of his bad start and he’s awful with other dogs. But I’m sure I have a lot to do with that. He always looks out for me which is sort of scary – like trying to protect me. But they are a great breed, I agree. 🙂

  9. They can be very protective dogs. Our white shepherd was very protective over us as well! I guess that can be both a good thing and a bad thing!

    I am loving the background photo on your blog. Those purple flowers are just so beautiful.

  16. Love Cole, I saw him in an older post. I would die without my 3-legged cat, so I plan on going when she does. Not kidding–she’s literally all I have. I grew up with a Shepard/black lab mix, and yes, they are very protective. Miss her. I didn’t get this post, either, What is going on with WP? Great photo, regardless.

    • Pets are amazing. I also got an Indian ringneck for Genny to keep her company (which by the way works very well). He just turned one on the 8th and he says a ton of words aleady – my favorites are “Come here” and “Come on”. He has a very beautiful and gentle voice. So pleasant. He’s absolutely adorable and I know that if she lost him – you know how it goes for birds… – I think that would be terrible for her. I’ll write a post on him sometime.

  22. Oh this is a wonderful escape, one of the best escapes! Love this story. Love that Cole has a family that loves him and appreciates him. That means everything. Last night my husband and I took our dog for a walk and we met a bunch of new people out walking their dogs. After we all said goodbye I said to my husband, “I remember all the dog’s names but I don’t remember any of the people’s names.” I think I naturally gravitate to dogs!!!! 🙂
