Well I just have to submit my dog Sid. I saw Sid at the shelter one day when my daughter-in-law and I just went there to visit. He was huge, fuzzy, lots of drool and I liked him right away but the last thing I needed
was a big dog. Many months later my daughter-in-law and I went back just to visit and poor Sid was still there. But I knew the last thing I needed
was this big dog. Another couple of months passed and my son and his wife went to the shelter... without any prompting from my daughter-in-law, my son saw Sid and said "thats a dog my mom would like" My daughter-in-law immediately recognized him as the one I had been looking at and they decided that day to get him for me for Christmas, though we had to wait a week to bring him home. At first I was a little hesitant- my son and his wife each have a big dog, and I have a little one, but I wanted Sid rescued from the shelter and it was so ironic that my son picked him out for me, that I began to look forward to Sid coming to live with us. He arrived on December 26, 2006. We didn't have a good first day, but by day 2 it became very evident that this was EXACTLY what I had needed
. We named him Walt Sidney.
Sid is estimated to be about 4 years old. He is half Chow and half long haired German Shepherd and 100% lap dog. Never has there been a more gentle giant and never have I had a better companion. I feel bad that he had to live at the shelter for 6 months of his life, but I am greatful that he is with me now. With the kids all grown up, it sure is nice to have this huge fuzzy drooling thing to keep me company!
