Hey all, I've been really wanting to get my blog going on this new site and this seems like an appropriate first post. A few days ago, I adopted a dog. His name is Ruger, and he is a 10 year old German Shorthaired Pointer.


Ruger was a hunting dog for most of his life, and then to my understanding, at some point he was drug behind a truck, and has scars on his feet from this. He then was going to be shot by his owners, for a reason that I am not aware, but the neighbors stopped them and brought Ruger to the rescue that we adopted him from (WGSPR).

Ruger has been with us for 3 days now. The first night was pretty rough for him. He was very nervous and sick but the last 2 days he's been very good and sweet. We've been going on lots of walks and exploring his new home. Yesterday, we went down to the Wisconsin River to go for a swim and he loved playing in the water.

I just thought I would introduce Ruger right from the start because I'm sure he will be a big part of my blog. I'm really excited for all of the adventures we will go on!
