Perfect timing.... remember why I do dog rescue

Hi Amy!

Just wanted to send a quick update on our Bernie. Everything about him is so awesome! He seriously is the best dog. You would be so proud of him. He is so friendly, lovey, easy-going, happy, & just perfect. I could go on forever about him. He & Lily are the best of friends. I knew she would at least tolerate him, but they are BFFs. Total shocker to me. Lily has even been less uptight since we've had Bernie. She used to get nervous around strangers, in the car, at the vet, etc, but I think she sees how calm Bernie is & it mellows her out.

He is a little goofy though. Ok, maybe a LOT goofy. I remember when we came to meet him & you told us he was a little odd. You couldn't have been more right about that. He definitely has a couple screws loose. Not in a bad way, just a dopey, happy go lucky dog way. He has a stuffed bunny that he takes everywhere & that's not an exaggeration. He's not protective over it (he lets Lily play with it), but he takes it everywhere like a kid with their baby blanket. If he comes to bed & forgets it, 5 minutes later he's searching the house for it & will only come back to bed when he has it. Bunny even goes outside with him to potty. Sometimes he drops bunny & ends up peeing on it. I don't know how many times I've had to wash that stupid thing. Our neighbors even know about bunny. I was letting him back inside the other day & heard the neighbor yell "Bernie, don't forget bunny!". LOL! He knew exactly what they said. He ran straight back to bunny, picked him up, & ran back to the door.

I attached a pic of the BFFs for you. I had some others, but he was either sleeping or had bunny in his mouth.

Hope all is well!
