about 3 months ago (i really need to get this blogging thing together) i came across a wire-haired terrier posted on the snooty giggles facebook page. we had lost wilson about 2 months earlier and my terrier defenses were at a very low point. i tried to put him out of my mind for a few days but finally sent shawn a text to find out his story. snooty giggles ended up with pow because a cherry eye had him slated for euthanasia at the shelter he was in…it was only after taking him into the program that it was found that he had luxating patellas in both knees and both required surgery.
pow came to us a few days after his first knee surgery as a “foster” and he’s been here since. after 3 surgeries and about 11 weeks of restrictions he’s finally been able to start living a little in the last few weeks and we’re happy to announce that he is now officially a colella.
he seems aptly named pow wow…the name fits him and because we can’t give up calling him “mr. wow” he’s keeping it. by now i’m sure you know what a fan of terriers i am and pow is the terrieriest terrier i think i’ve ever come across. his ratio of sweet and loving to shitheaded and terrorizing is pretty much 50:50. he walked in and immediately acted like he owned the joint and i have no doubt he actually will in short time.
he and estelle adore each other…
so there's that.
please join us in welcoming mr wow to the earthdoglife community!
