I cannot believe it took me 24 days to mention my little puppy, Slugger. We elcomed him into our home and our hearts in August 2016.

I am not generally an animal person but this dog just charmed the socks off of me. He looks for me always and when I was sickest, he was right there with me. During my surgery recoveries and chemotherapy treatments, he was my shadow, or really, my couch buddy, as I did not move much during those times while at home.

I love my Slugger and am so happy to be his furmama — or grandmama, as the kids feel he is their “son” … lol.
