You can't make him out in the dog park, but if you look carefully-- his Dobie-butt is right in the center of the photo facing the camera... doggie's first mooning, I guess!

He tried to take over my bed, but learned that it's off-limits (and I learned how hard it is to move a determined 75lb Dobe!)

Great pictures! The one of him sneaking into bed is hilarious. He has such a great look on his face, like "What's the problem? I'm super comfortable." Love it. :wub:

The look on his face while you are trying to push him off the bed is priceless! :wub: . He looks like he's pushing right back. Don't you love the dog park? When I go, I just walk the perimeter and let the dogs have fun.....although they are constantly looking around for me and make sure they know where I am.

So Vegas and I have been through quite a ride since our mutual adoption--- we've experienced doggie puke and squirty watery diarrhea (don't ask me what happened when he sneezed during this phase, I was just happy we happened to be outside at the time), we've experienced dog park fun, our first training course (top of his class, of course!), new mom panic at every new lump, bump, or sneeze (which makes my vet happy and RICH), we've experienced countless walks and romps in the back yard. The first couple of weeks, he was careful and reserved... but now, I am happy to announce that his very *distinctive* Dobie personality has been coming out the last few weeks. If you don't believe me, check out the pics below... Vegas went to get a head rub from my roommate, Jose... Jose put his hat on Vegas' head-- I can honestly tell you I've NEVER seen his tail wag so much! He kept the hat on and kept wagging, so we snapped photos:))

He really is loved... by everyone that meets him, too! Neighbors and friends as well. Happy me!
I am so grateful to SCD for taking care of my boy until I found him!!

How my rescue Dobe rescued me...

So I already typed the whole story in once, but there was some kind of error when I submitted and it's gone, so now you guys just get the short version:

I moved to Chicago for a new job. When I was south of the city in November looking for placed to live, some thug tried to mug me at knife point as I walked back to my car. My mugger didn't see Vegas in the car (and the window was part-way down). My sweet, loving, gentle boy turned into a barking, growling, teeth-baring crazy thing---my mugger froze-- and I was able to get into my car and drive off.

This dog patiently lets toddlers "hug" him, almost never barks, and is friendly with anything human. I never expected that sight from him, but boy was I happy to see it that day!

I've had Vegas with me around 8 months now, and I can't for the life of me understand how anyone gave him up. It's amazing how quickly these guys become a part of you.

Four legs, fur and a whole lot of heart... I'll upload pics of the now Chicago-based Vegas soon.
