A little over a year ago we brought Winston home from the pound. It feels like he's been a part of our lives for so much longer. He was a bit pudgy when we got him yet he didn't eat for the first 3 weeks at home. Stress, I guess. He's trimmer now (about 10 pounds lighter) and he's so much more energetic and adventurous - no longer clinging to my side on walks but out exploring alongside his brother. Sometimes he snores like a lumberjack. I think that's my favorite thing about him.
