King Squishy

Meet “G” or as we call him more and more these days “King Squishy”.

I recently decided that it was time for a new dog in my life. I’d been dog-less for about a year after my divorce and really missed having a dog hanging around. I decided immediately that I didn’t want a puppy. For me they are just too much work and too much chewing on things they aren’t supposed to, etc. Even the time to train a puppy is probably too much for me with my busy work schedule. So I decide an older dog would be the one for me. I adopted “G” from a special program, the Colorado Prison Trained Program. The program takes dogs in and trains them incredibly well in basic manners and even a few tricks. Perfect – training problem also solved! (So that is why “G” goes by “G” instead of his real name here.)

King Squishy was thought to be 5 by the program but my vet thinks maybe more like 7 or 8 which is fine with me. He earned the name King Squishy almost immediately because of all the extra fur and skin around his neck – he’s just Squishy!

Of course he is a bit nervous when I leave the house but we’ve worked through that and he spends most days basking in the sun outside when I am at work and when I get to work from home he spends them laying at my feet in the office or in the kitchen watching me cook. An of course he like to rub his back on the carpet – he will actually lay like that in front of me sometimes and wait until I rub his belly. He latched right on to me as alpha but adores the kids as well and is incredibly good with little kids he meets when we are out for walks.

King Squishy is a wonderful dog from a great rescue. The fees were incredibly reasonable when I look at the neutering, the shots, and the other vet work that they did as well as the training in this case!

Consider an older dog – you won’t regret it!
