Default My precious boy!

Meet Indie, the super elk-hound/shepherd cross! We adopted him in October 2006, and he's has literally been THE light of my life ever since.

I got the idea for his name from the Indiana Jones movie with Sean Connery starring as Indie's Dad. Loved that line he shot back when Ford's character told him to stop calling him Junior and call him by his name. Connery said: "We named the dog Indie!" And I thought, cool name for a dog if he suits it.

And Indie did! We had lovingly released our other boy, Chevy, from his physical suffering the previous August. (Enlarged heart, paralysis in the back legs, poor boy.) I was so deep in grief that I never wanted to have another dog in my life. Then that October, I felt ready. I met with dozens of dogs that weekend but didn't feel a fit - until I saw my boy. I was so happy, I called my husband at his work. He told me later, all he heard was: "Hi-honey-we-got-a-new-dog-his-name-is-Indie-I-gotta-go-takin-him-home-now-bye!"
(PS - try "open in new window" for a larger better quality of the picture. Proud Mom!!!)
