I had bought these cute Halloween costumes for him and Jax and I let him keep his. I got way too attached to this little dog you guys and he had the sweetest soul. Opie wanted to be carried by me or just held and that last night, he practically slept on me. If I moved over, he would move too / closer. As it turned out, his name is Riley. His owner was a young girl and he stayed a lot at her parents house with her brother and 2 other dogs. Opie ( he will always be Opie), was so smart, he learned how to open the gate and is how he got out in the first place.
I know I jumped the gun and shouldn't have let myself get too attached to him after just one week. I can't explain how special he was and how much I loved him. When we got home from dropping him off, Jax looked for him in all the rooms and then he literally cried out loud for a second because he missed him.
We definitely need to get Jax a buddy because he was so happy and had fun with Opie. Is it crazy that I have cried the ugly cry more times than I can count over a dog?
I miss Jax so much and Todd is so awesome to text me a picture of him everyday while I'm gone. Good news is that I am flying to Montana in 3 days to visit Mom for a week. I need that time to unwind and cry in the mountains for Opie. The little gal who is the owner, did agree to a play date soon with Jax. I asked her if we could stay in touch. That helps for sure. The pictures are terrible because I'm crying but I wanted to have some of him and them together with Jax.
I love the one with his sweet head resting on me. That's how he was. So sweet!
Have a great day y'all!
