The story of Ender and I is your classic, adopt-a-dog story.
I found this lovely quadruped online at adoptapet.com and then met him at the East Bay SPCA. Initially I was looking for a dog for my Mama. She briefly stated that she might want to maybe look for another dog and I jumped on the half formed idea before she even realized what she had said. "Gender?" Any. "Age?" All. "Breed?" Pit bull.
I grew up knowing nothing about the bad rap pit bull type dogs have and loved our family's pit mix with all of my heart. He was the sweetest puppy, most loving and loyal dog, and now he is the one of the coolest senior dogs I've ever known and continues to amaze me everyday that he is in my life. Of course I was going to want another companion just like him!! It wasn't until a couple years ago that I started hearing whispers about this breed of dog but I never believed any of them. My dog was amazing and no one could tell me otherwise. But...back to searching for a new dog ----> After typing in the parameters for my next dog I found 2 pups who looked like they'd be a great match for me and my family. The first, a brown 6 month old pit mix described as a "couch potato" and a fawn puppy who had a sweet disposition and 6-pack abs. I decided to meet the brown dog first, little did I know I was about to meet my adventure buddy, my partner in crime, my best friend.
Now...I don't want to say it was "love at first sight"... but it was definitely "love at first lick." I hung out with Ender for an hour before being dragged out of the play area by my sister. We had immediately clicked and he definitely was more interested in me than any of the other people that were in the pen with us. :) From then on I knew this pup had to be in my life.
Fast forwarding to the present and Ender and I have only been in each other's lives for 11 months but I can't remember what I was doing without him, what my drive to wake up was everyday. This boy has impacted my life so greatly and has done so much good in my life. However, I can't pretend its been rainbows and butterflies since I've gotten him. Its been quite the journey. We've definitely had our ups and downs, good days and bad. But I've never had a more rewarding experience.
Expect to read stories, see pictures, and enjoy our adventure with us. I'm glad you're here and can't wait to experience life with you all!
Our best, Hannah&Ender. xx
