The Monster Dog



In our family, we love dogs. Pretty much any kind of dog. Both Steph and I grew up with dogs. Our first dog as a family was a lovely deaf dalmatian named Liebe. She was a sweetheart and lived to be almost 15 years old.

We couldn't live too long without a dog, so we searched rescue organizations on the internet and found our new puppy. According to Dawn at Tailwaggers 911 (the rescue group), her mom is a chocolate lab and she thought dad is a boxer. Whatever...all we know is she is a good dog. We named her Tacoma because we got her the day after we returned from a vacation to Tacoma.

The reason for calling her Monster Dog is that she is about 85 lbs--about twice the size of our dalmatian. I know there are a lot of other dogs that are a lot bigger than Tacoma, but she's the biggest dog we've ever owned. I grew up with a border collie and Steph grew up with beagles. Also, she likes to snag food off of the counter and table and anywhere else she can find it...

She is a good dog, though, and we're happy to have her in our house. Here's a link to the rescue we got her from. Tailwaggers 911 in Saukville, WI. Thanks, Dawn! http://www.tailwaggers911.com/index.asp

  1. Is this the one who ate your new wool purse??? he-he. We love dogs and have rescued a few too. Our last two were Alaskan Malamutes, and we are still broken hearted over losing them both last year. Can't bear to do it again for awhile. Too fresh.
