In March, 2011, Les decided Neeko needed a brother, and we needed another dog.  Dog park friends had told him how much happier she would be with another dog around.  To we go.  We looked at various GSD and Alaskan Malamute mixes, knowing we needed to find a big boy, as Neeko was growing up to be a very tall girl.  We found Bruce through a local rescue, filled out an application and went to meet him with Neeko at his foster mom's house.  They hit it off.

These are pics from their first meeting.  Bruce is also a tall doggy.  He is an agouti Malamute mix.  The vet clinic this particular rescue uses apparently recognized Bruce, and was able to provide the rescue with all of his records, as his original owners had also taken him there.  His name had been Bruce his whole life, so we did not change it.  The rescue provided us with these old vet records, having marked out the original owners' names with a sharpie (which I could read through).  He was listed as 10 weeks old on December 8, 2009, so we celebrate his birthday as October 1, 2009.  I would later find out who his "breeder" is through Facebook, and receive pictures of his parents,and find out that his birthday actually is October 1.

We officially adopted and brought Bruce home on Thursday, April 28, 2011.  He was a little over a year and a half old.
