We adopted Pete, who was originally named Oscar, from Second Chance Rescue in September 2002. He was approximately 9 weeks old. He was one of a litter of puppies abandoned, fostered by SCR and my husband, Dave, took one look at him at an adoption event and was hooked. We gave him an official birthday because nobody knew the exact date he was born - August 31st 2002 which was also the date we got married.

Pete was diagnosed one month ago with Osteosarcoma, and, today, we put him to sleep so he is no longer in pain. He was with us, by his official birthday, for 9 years, 7 months and 12 days and every single minute of it was pure joy.
Thank you, Second Chance Rescue, for giving us the opportunity to care for and love Pete. We will miss him so much..
