Wilbur was a 9-month-old puppy when One More Dog Rescue took him in. No one knows what he has been through in his past life. But surely, it was a tough one.When Wilbur moved into a foster home, he was horrified of everything around him. Fortunately, he was blessed with a determined foster family who showered him with lots of love and patience and helped him overcome his fears. In a couple of months, Wilbur has transformed into an entirely different pup and became an official member of his family.Everything scared him, said Wilbur’s mom, Kristin LaRoche. He was incredibly terrified to spend time outside. The littlest thing and the slightest sound scared him. Whether it’s the chirping of the birds or the gusting of the wind, it will cause the poor pup to cower.But now that Wilbur is in a safe environment, he loves nothing but to be outside. He explores every corner of their yard and sniffs out anything that comes along his way. And sometimes, his love to discover goes a bit too much.Most recently, the adorable pup has taken an interest in digging holes all around their backyard. His mom, of course, wasn’t thrilled. But that was until Kristin realized the reason behind Wilbur’s naughty habit.While most dogs would randomly dig holes and leave them behind after, Wilbur does otherwise. He decided he could use them for something more meaningful. And so, he started taking naps in the holes that he created outside.Kristin burst in laughter the first time she saw Wilbur sound asleep in its hole. He passed out in the most hilarious way. But Wilbur was completely still that Kristin needed to check he’s alright.Kristin had no idea how long Wilbur has been in that position. She tapped the window, and the pup immediately woke up and came running inside the house.The hole has since been filled by Wilbur’s family to keep the yard safe and clean. But they have a hunch that the moment Wilbur decides he’s taking another nap outside; there will be another hole in their backyard.Credits to Kristin LaRoche
So you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I am a Canadian, husband, and father of two young men.
I would say boys but they are not really “boys” anymore. They are 19 and 17. But they will always be my little ones. :-)
And, of course, we also have a dog. He is an Affenpinscher. Also affectionately known as a Monkey Dog.
His name is Monty. Yes, it is after Monty Python as he is a funny, crazy character.
Dogs have always been a part of my life. My parents started and owned a Dog and Cat boarding kennel just 20 minutes north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia.
I started this website as a way to give back to the dog community. Which is full of many extraordinary dogs and owners doing many different and exciting things.
I hope you come back often to enjoy the wondrous stories I find.
Thank You for your time and interest.
