We're new to the forum but I wanted to share some pictures of Zippy. We think that he's about 10 years old. He is a rescue dog from the local shelter and has been living happily with us for about 2 months now. He's got a few medical issues (some missing teeth, a level 3 heart murmur, and he doesn't hear all that well) but he is the best thing that we've ever brought into our household. Neither my wife nor I had ever owned a dog before; she very much wanted one but I was not completely sure about the idea. However, as it turns out, I am so glad that we made the decision to adopt him. He has enriched out lives so much in the past few months and now I suddenly cannot imagine life without him here.
