An introduction to our dogs.....
Curtis - the young boy
Pepe - it is! he's our newest rescue.
Binky - the princess (deceased)
George - Rest in Peace! (deceased)
Our dogs give us hours of enjoyment. It is amazing how they give our home a feeling of life. If they are not home the house seems so empty. They have such strong personalities and are the best companions.

The Newest Member of Our Family!
So we just adopted this little guy tonight. We think he is chihuahua/border collie mix? He is all black. Maybe 6 months old. He was found in Playa del Carmen, CA. People said they saw people throw him out of a car. Our friend who found him knows a vet who is going to neuter him for free for us. He's getting along super great with Curtis and he is now sleeping away in daddy's arms.
Update! We decided on Pepe! Thank you all for your suggestions.
So this little guy has become such a sweetheart. He was so scared when we rescued him and would freak out at almost everything. He is now one of the pack laying on our bellies and scratching at us for attention. He is the boss of Curtis and keeps him busy!
We started calling him pimento and somehow we just came up with the name, Pepe! Join us in welcoming him to our family!
The newest member of the pack, Curtis, has boundless energy. He is a Border Collie mix that we got at the Los Angeles shelter. We were going by the park on Moorepark and stopped by their rescue drive. A lady was holding him but not making up her mind. So, I grabbed him outta her lap and said, "he's ours!" However, he was listed as a female. We still are not 100 percent sure if he is female or male and almost called him Jaslene. He is a big lover and our protector.

Who would you want to take home? Tell us why!
Binky is our first dog. We bought her at a pet store in Nyack, NY at a mall. It was Christmas season and we were shopping. We stopped in the store to see the puppies and we saw her and asked to pet her. The salesperson told me to go sit in the petting area. He went and got her from the cage and when he let her out she jumped down and ran across the store and into my lap. We were not able to leave her there. She is a Boston Terrier and completely adorable.
Binky started leaning over and bending her head back to her side the other day. It went away then started up again. So, today I took her into the vet. She had x-rays and bloodwork. So, it looks like an inflamed nerve in her neck and she is now in the hospital for 2 days with a steroid intraveneous drip. The x-rays only showed minor inflamation (from age) on her spine and nothing else! So that is the good news. Hopefully, she will recover fully after a few months. We will have to seperate her an Curtis because they tend to play real hard. So that could only agravate the situation. Please send her good thoughts! Thank you!
Binky passed on this morning at home. She has been suffering from Vestibular disease. She is now running around with George.
We will miss her very much.
After the drama with Binky being sick from the puppy mill or whatever she came from, we decided to rescue a Boston once we came to Los Angeles. So, we found Boston Buddies and we met a few dogs till we found George and he and Binky hit it off. They have been best friends ever since. He only had one eye when we got him. Two years ago his cornea melted and he is no blind in his remaining eye. It is amazing how well he gets around. He smells where he is going. And from time to time Curtis acts like a border collie and guides him. He is at least 14 years old now and winding down. We are giving him the most comfortible life we can right now.
George is now running in the woods of heaven and chasing critters. We miss him very much and are happy we gave him some comfort and love to end his days.
My new friend!
This is Wallace!!! He is standing on my desk. You can see he is very small. My coworker rescued him. He was a mess when she got him. Now he is super spoiled and just loves to sit in your lap. He weighs about 6 pounds!!!!! So cute. His ears were a mess so they had to sew them shut. I have never heard of that but it seems to not have affected him that much.
