#112 - Ringo's 1st Gotcha Day!
We adopted this handsome, old chap exactly one year ago today! When we saw his photo online on a rescue website, we fell in love with his big eyes and gray snout that show his wisdom and experience. At 8 years old, it looked as though Ringo would be stuck at the shelter, and we knew that with a name like "Ringo", he had to be a part of our family (since we are huge Beatles fans)!
He was only 12 lbs. when we got him, completely malnourished and starved. He was a bit skittish and would eat anything that seemed remotely edible. Now Ringo weighs in at a healthy 20 lbs. and enjoys every day with my family. He eats only healthy foods, with an occasional yummy treat, and often plays with his favorite stuffed octopus. He loves to curl up in the corner of the couch in the cutest little ball and is a warm bundle when he lays across your lap. He is especially attached to my mother, since he is more her dog while JD is mine, but the entire family adores him and his caterpillar-like eyebrows.
Ringo turned 9 years old just 3 days ago on July 7 - the same day as the real Ringo Starr. How cool is that coincidence?
Thank you, Ringo, for joining our family!
