Happy Adoption Day to my Evan

Evan is Seven! (years with us, anyway . . . he's really turning ~9)

On January 2, 2010 we went to the shelter and asked to see him. We were told there was someone on the list to meet him ahead of us but we could wait. 

And then, I suppose, those people picked another dog, or didn't come back for their meet and greet, and we were in. 

He was distracted and aloof and the info on him was he'd need training and do better in a home without small children.

But we took a chance, brought him in, and he was an instant friend to Katy, perfectly behaved, and wonderful with little kids. Just goes to show you, those behavior evaluations are done in high stress situations where they can't get a good read on the dog's true personality. 

He decided I would be his human. I figured it out shortly thereafter. And the rest is history.

Some favorite photos of the past seven years . . . starting with the very first one 1/2/10
