Me and Elvis – together 7 years today
Seven years ago today, I gave myself the best Valentine’s Day present ever – a new best friend. I adopted Elvis on February 11, 2005 – he was just 3 months old. A few weeks before, I started my search for a dog. I had recently bought a house with a fenced in yard, and I wanted a dog. I thought about a bulldog or a corgi and then decided on a mutt from a shelter. I went on petfinder.com and found this dog already named Elvis, but there was no picture – it was fate. He was rescued from a kill shelter in West Virginia and was currently with a foster family with Furry Friends in York, PA. I drove up to meet Elvis on February 5th. He was 15 pounds at 11 weeks old. Six days later Elvis was mine. He came for a home visit and never left. Within a couple of days, he was potty trained and crate trained. I thought he was a genius! We bonded VERY quickly. We have been best friends ever since. Elvis has been by my side through a few boyfriends, friends come and gone, three houses, a few foster dogs, one permanent dog (he’s still not crazy about his sister Cilla), parties, outings, a great three month road trip on the U2 360 tour, and my everyday highs and lows. Through it all, Elvis is always there for me.
