Mostly


Mostly perfect.

Windy, cold and rainy day.

Supposed to hike.

I could just skip it.

Then I remember. It’s MOSTLY!


I get to Pine Street when the rain starts

to become an official downpour.

The room in which Mostly is located

has about 10 dogs who,

when that door opens,

pop up their heads and start the wagging.

Apparently MOSTLY wags the MOST.

His tail has a little sore at its tip,

DUE TO WAGGING IN THE CRATE!

Don’t get me wrong, the metal crate is very comfortable

and large, but dogs with real long tails

sometimes rub them against the back and

eventually, if they wag wag and wag

~~~so happy to see us humans~~~

they sometimes get a little abrasion back there.

Cute tail, just a bit of a boo-boo, and he doesn’t care!

WAG WAG.

He mostly sits quietly in the camper part of my truck,

jumped right in without hesitation.

Rear-view mirror–cute nobby head, droopy ears.

Bounds right out, but listens well to “wait”



If there’s a dog that can get along with a boy, it is Mostly.




So what do you do with a one-year old, athletic

and fun-loving dog on a rainy day?

Have him hike with an athletic, fun-loving teenager! Mostly.

We figure a muddy, slippery trail might be too much with the

downpour on top of that….so, we head south to apply personal loan online in bajaj finance Cliff Cave Park

and walked the river trail–which is paved! Not my style, but…..





His brindle coat gives him a fine camouflage

And lots to smell in the brush beside the edges of the trail….

Too bad there are no other canines along the way,

however, my dog Blue is there, and they do well together.

I had Mostly the week before in a small group.
He was very sweet to both the other dogs and the humans.

See! Here he is with his hiking partner, Barbi.

John and Mostly enjoy the walk without serious pulling issues.

He seems to understand John’s the decision maker, not him.

They get along perfectly.


Good bursts of energy. Much needed release.

Mostly misunderstood, he is not “hyper” or difficult.

He is a young male who likes to act like a young male.

Mostly.

He acts NORMAL OUTSIDE in the real world. He has a chance to explore.

He likes to run a bit. He loves to be a boy….dog.

And they’re OFF!!



It doesn’t matter if it is raining.

He doesn’t even mind when John says no to getting in the….

MISSISSIPPI RIVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kinda looks fun out there in that water!

And isn’t this guy GORGEOUS?!!!!

Look at his well-proportioned body, white-stocking front legs….

He is neutered and chipped by the way.

Like Ludwig (past posting– but sorry he’s taken!) he is a…

CHICK MAGNET!

Mostly.



We head to the house. Wet, but happy.

He again acts so well-behaved in the truck, he gets to “move up”

to the back seat! I get a couple kisses on my ear. :o)

Al the dogs–even Blue–accept him after the “white glove inspection”.

He enjoys a bit of “down time” with a bone, and as you can see,

he has no trouble

with John holding onto it while he munches! Hmmm. Nice.



But he really likes the outside! Mostly.




So there you have it. Mostly. But not completely.
The best way you can get to know him, is to see him in person.
Go down to SR and take a nice walk with him. Feel his soft fur!
Bring a couple tissues, not for tears, but for…
all the sloppy kisses!! <3


No words need to be said!

 He was in a foster home, but due to changes
in the F.P.’s situation, he is now in the shelter at Pine.

    donna, I hadn’t seen this post until tonight. I have to say, if I had my choice of one dog to adopt, Mostly would be the one. I absolutely LOVE him and can’t believe how long he has been around. I searched him on SR’s website, and there are events that he attended that date back to last June. Has he been there since he was a puppy? I walked him today and spent a lot of time snuggling with him…he is so sweet. I hope his day comes soon. I may have to take him to an adoption event soon.

    He will be at the Hiker’s adoption event if he is not adopted by then I love him too. I even love his name!

    why is such a sweet good looking boy still doing in the shelter. Made me sad! I dont get it? Is Mostly good with kids/dogs/cats is he housebroken by chance? My husband walks most days 2 miles or more and he enjoys a companion but in the past few yrs we have lost 3 due to old age, shelter dogs all of them.We have a large fenced yard but the animals usually prefer to be inside with us…Tell me what u know about Mostly, good and bad. He looks to me more boxer mix than terrier mix (i’m assuming that refers to pit mix)and his sad eyes just melt my heart for real.
