I had been thinking about adopting a rescued dog for the past 6 months. I really thought for sure it would be a pointer but then Monk seemed to just come into my life. The rescue he was being fostered at has a dog at the barn where I keep my horses and she mentioned they had just gotten this St Bernard only the week before that had been abandoned by his family of 7 years!! Since I love big dogs I asked to meet him and then decided to foster him for a couple weeks while I decided. Well I have adopted him, medical problems and all. You see he is a senior (for that breed) and is heart worm positive with already heart damage. He needs a loving home for the rest of his life.
He is the kindest, gentlest soul you'd ever meet and is also the most inactive couch potato I have ever had! If you need a pillow, he's got that covered!
He has one main maintenance problem. He doesn't want anything to do with actual dog food; especially kibbles! I wonder what they fed him in his before life! He had to eat to get this big!! (145 lbs) I've never had a dog that wasn't food motivated!
So, since he needs food in his stomach to take his numerous medications, I now cook for two! Him and I! We're eating the same thing.
Monk . . . are you training me?????Your new mommy!
Oh yes, and Rocky now wants chicken added to his food too!!!!
