It's My Three Sons all over again! What handsome and happy hundies they are now, but it wasn't always this way for them. We decided to adopt Henry, the red smooth Yankees fan (formerly known as Elf) because he was one hard luck little dog looking for a break from back injury, to surgery, to months of crating and then heart worm, this spunky little guy had been there and done it all in his three short years. Still a wobbly dog, we welcomed him and haven't looked back. Within weeks, we realized he needed another guy his own size as a partner in his hundie high jinx and that was Teddy, (formerly Sam), the black smooth Knicks fanatic with the stylish mustache and cool, calm unruffled demeanor to offset Henry the brat. Himself a recovered back injury dog that was shuffled around endlessly, Henry & Teddy bonded instantly, both to us and to each other. They began to lose weight and gain strength with their toy tussles in the backyard and walks through the neighborhood. They learned to use their ramps and not to jump on furniture. That is until that maniac Mets fan, Stanley (aka Kuby) the black/tan dapple with his puppy-like personality and endless kisses came onto the scene to round out this threesome of high-spirited hounds. Henry got his lucky break, Teddy got his forever home and Stanley got two big brothers to nag at and love on. How much happier can you have it?

From the bottom of our hearts and the bottomless pit of doxie kisses, special thanks to Aunties Pam and Peg without whom none of this would have happened and to all of you in DRNA, thank you for our beautiful boys!!
