Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Can you believe it’s been 5 years since I was welcomed into my forever home? I’m sad to say that this year the rescue Millie and I came from has stopped their rescue work. We can’t thank all the volunteers enough for helping both of us find our forever home. We can keep up with all the alumni from the rescue on their Facebook page now at BDBH Alumni.

I think you all know how much I love my home.

I love playing in our yard in the snow…

…and wrestling with Millie

We can hang out quietly together too.

I love my yard no matter what time of year it is.

But my favorite thing to do is to hang out in bed with my pawrents.

My mom makes a great pillow.

I may be a bit grayer around the muzzle but I haven’t slowed down a bit. I sometimes wonder how my brother is doing. I know he was adopted by another family and I hope he is as happy as I am. I sure am lucky to have found my pawrents and sister.

Hi everyone, it’s Walter here. OMD it’s hard to imagine that it’s already been two years since I came to live in my wonderful home.

Can you believe that this is what I looked like then?

I sure was a scrawny kid then. Now I’m a lean, mean, running machine.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it. I hope you noticed that Millie never catches me and I always call off the chase by running into the garage.

Did you see how I smoked Millie? BOL!

Of course I have to thank my rescue Big Dogs Big Hearts and foster pawrents Lindsay and Jon for helping me find my forever home. I sure love my family and would never want to live anywhere else.

Before I go I have to give a little shout out to another guy celebrating his Gotcha Day too. Happy Gotcha Day Frankie Furter! We sure are a couple of lucky guys.

Hi everyone, Millie here to tell you about everything that has been going on around here for the past week. Last Saturday we all went to the regular meet and greet for the rescue I came from, Big Dogs Big Hearts. I thought it was just to see my foster parents, but after saying hello to them I met a cute little boy dog named Walter and we hit it off right away.

Isn’t he a cutie! They say he is a boxer mix and I think his head shows it well. Right away we started playing and having a great time together. A few days later Walter and his foster mommy came to our house to visit. We played outside for a while and then I showed him the house.

Here we are with Walter’s foster mommy. She is very nice.

Walter is only about 6 months old (I will be 1 in just a couple of weeks) and that boy has lots of energy.

Today was two days since Walter and his foster mom came to visit us. This morning mom, dad and I went to a local pet store and Walter was there with his foster mommy too! Next thing I know mom was signing a bunch of forms, we went inside the store and bought some food that isn’t my brand and a new toy. After that we got back in the car to go home and Walter got in the car with us!

When we got home we all went outside and had a huge play session. I like chasing Walter and trying to herd him. Everyone thinks I’m part Australian Cattle dog so I guess I’m just doing what comes naturally. Mom took a lot of videos, but we will show you those some other day.

Walter is a pretty lovable guy and likes to give the peeps lots of kisses just like I do.

It’s fun to gang up on daddy and smother him with kisses.

millie walter - what is that thing under there


Walter has some parts that are different than mine. Mom and dad have never had a boy dog before so if there are any secrets to raising a boy puppy please let them know. Mom said that Walter has had his bobblectomy already, whatever that means.

So far we are getting along great! Dad thinks we spend just a little too much time playing bitey face and chasing each other around, but I say you can never play too much.

walter - spotty paw


Everyone thinks that when Walter is full grown he and I will be a similar size. Don’t you just love his one speckled paw? After mom and dad ate lunch we all went upstairs and had a little nap (very little nap). Mom said it was nice to see that little Walter could settle down for a while. Right now we (all four of us) are stretched out on our big bed while I dictate this post to mom.

walter - got underbite

Earlier tonight I was kind of wondering when Walter was going back home, but then I realized he was home! It might take a little while getting used to having a little brother, but it sure is fun having someone around to play with besides my dad. I just want to say to Walter, “Welcome home Walter, welcome home!”
