Community, Poncho and all those that made this rescue come together are some of the best people I have never known. In this world full of shit right now you are all truly Gods people. :)
Thank you,
I can already tell he is going to be a great companion, looking forward to many great adventures to come.....Community did the heavy lifting here and I owe him a great big serving of gratitude for filling a hole that I didn't realize was so big till now.

haha. Cant get much more relaxed than that
My Sis said he cruises around the house with her never underfoot just watching, her and her husband think he is a great dog. They used to have a marine retail store with 3 service bays and their dog went to work with them every day for 10 years, she was a sweetheart. My Sis was devastated when she passed and has not been able to get another dog since, kind of hoping Huck changes that. 👍

Looks like I have me a water dog. 👍 Little Sister said they haven't been able to keep him out of the pool till yesterday. Brother In Law was trimming palm tree's and Huck stayed in the pool the whole time till all she could see was the top of his head. Wore himself out and her words "He avoided that

pool the rest of the day".

:p

They say he sits next to the pool everyday till he get's permission to go in. Started with a life vest and now no life vest and leaps from the side to retrieve the tennis ball, air dog. 👍
My Brother in Law has little patience for dogs that don't mind, messaged me this morning and said "you got yourself a Bad Ass Dog"
The internet on this boat is horrible, not going to bother trying to fix the errors.

Kind of wish there were 2 Hucks.

Huck and I finally made it to Mass (Home). Flying a dog in cargo is not a simple procedure, if anyone here is thinking of doing it message me. They turned us away the first day because the vet did not add her accreditation number on her form that did not have a place for it, they said she should have known...Very hard to not rage out on the guy. Here's Huck going to the airport the first and second morning with me, already bonded like we were together for years.

So after getting turned away I rebooked both flights, hotel and rental cars. Called the vet and she was off till Friday, this was Wednesday morning. Hadn't slept in my bed in 3 months and staying in a hotel with a new to me dog I was pretty frustrated and trying not to go completely fucking ballistic on someone. At this point I had thousands invested and no idea when we would get home.

To say Huck is a good dog would be understatement, everyone that has come in contact with him thinks he is awesome. In 5 days time I can't move without him watching and following me.He goes to sleep on his bed and doesn't move till I am making a cup of coffee in the morning. Spent the day getting my yard in shape and he followed and watched the whole time, teased him with the blower.😁 I had him on the leash to keep him from jumping in the lake and coming in the house wet and dirty, took the leash off and he was in the water minutes later.🤪

I had everyone laughing around the fire last night telling them how my Sister who had him for 3 weeks was giving me his napping instructions, those who know me know I stay pretty busy and poor Huck was not going to see any naps

We are having a blast, no need for a leash he keeps me in sight........This is a Bad Ass dog, best dog I ever has was an Aussie and Huck is almost a reincarnation of that dog, we are at the point of visual signals after 6 days.

Update on Huck, he has settled in and chilled out so much I was worried about him, spent 750 at the vet yesterday so they could tell me he's a great dog. This dog is amazing, Everywhere I go people say where is Huck?....He's welcome every place I take him.

This is "THE POST OF THE YEAR"!!

Honestly, probably the "THREAD OF THE YEAR"!

Cool as hell!! Sounds like you have found your new best friend, and likewise for Huck!!
Absolutely,
Interesting how I adjust plans to include him or accomodate him before I commit to things now, he dosen't care what we do as long as he with me. Over at my friends place last night, goes around and say's hi to everyone then comes and lays alongside me, he is the epitome of a chill dog.

Hey. Been a minute. I am glad he has worked out. I was sad to see him go but I know he is well taken care of. Give me a call sometime. New cell is 480-930-6502.
