White Dog, The Other White Dog (Quinn), Another White Dog (Nuka), and Still Another White Dog (Puff) have a very important message for Yet Another White Dog...
Happy First Gotcha Day, YoYoMa! 
The White Dog Army is glad 
to have you in our pack!

For every comment left today here or on our networked blog we will donate $1.00 to the Blind Dog Rescue Alliance to help vision impaired pups get second chances.

YoYo and Big Carl
YoYoMa has so many to thank for getting him from northern California to Albuquerque, NM. The blog community jumped right in to volunteer, to transport, to overnight, and then when things got a bit squirrelly to vet and board him onto a plane. We are forever grateful to Hana's mom, to Cappy and Ollie's family, to Teddy and Sierra and their mommy and daddy, to Comet and Blu's mom, and to so many more (another amazing rescue story involving all of you, strangers, convoluted connections, and a whole lot of "it was obviously meant to bes).

YoYoMa sends special thanks to Big Carl, Mesa, and Baily and their humans for all the incredible help they provided to get him home.

Standing on a corner in Winslow AZ...waiting for us. That is Comet and Blu's mom letting him know we had arrived!

Meeting the WDA for the first time! What a difference a year makes...

Bee is one of YAWD's favorite toys
Who could resist this face?
Yo DOES have a bit of Bubba in him...compared to mild mannered Quinn, he is the college frat boy!
Treat time is NEVER missed. He can hear and identify a treat bag rustling  even from the other end of the house!
Steve's steadiest, most reliable Walk Buddy, although a brisk trot or a run with White Dog is OK, too!
Happy Gotcha Day, Big Boy! It was a blessed day for all of us!

Yo Yo, Your a cool guy. Wow, when I come out, we can have a grand time. Your family loves you so much. Sometimes being a boy Eskie makes it hard to be adopted. If we aren't treated well, we can be kinda not nice. Your Mommy and Daddy love you so much.
Siku, I miss you and I will be out to see you quite soon.
Your paramore,
Andy Stanley
