Happy Gotcha Day Zaphod

Today we celebrate 3 years of Zaphod!

It is Phod's 3rd Gotcha Day and we couldn't be happier to have him in our pack.

Recently, while cleaning out some papers in my office I came across the sheet where I took notes when speaking to Gloria at Catahoula Rescue before we met him. I had emailed and said we were looking for the opposite of Hailey and she said she may have one.

Here is a summary of what I wrote:
-Confident - good with other dogs
-Could use a little obedience training
-Bath went well but he didn't like the blow dryer - put his head in the bathers arms looking for comfort. He was afraid but didn't act out.
-Loves to have his head out the window when driving.
-Amazing with cats, walked past them.

-His vet loved him.
-He was about a year.
-Thin - 48 lbs - 10-15 lbs under weight - small side for Shepherds
-Play date can be set up in a week as he was recovering from surgery (this was his snip snip!)

With the exception of the car (he really hates it), everything has been true. We met him and I fell head over heals in love with my boy.  He is my special, special boy.

Happy Gotcha Day Zaphod!
