View Full Version : My Heart Belongs to Norman *sigh* (PUP PICS)

Geez, my heart is in a billion pieces right now. I am SO in love with this puppy and it is tearing me up inside that I just can't take in another animal right now. I would feel much better if I knew he was going to a good home, but I don't have all the say in the matter (I do have some say, not a lot though). I'm REALLY tired right now so I'm not going to give the story until tomorrow. I just really wanted to share these pictures of the sweet boy. He spent the weekend with me.

Behind the desk at work with me on Saturday morning:




Being a good boy in the car on the way to my parents' (I had wanted them to adopt him but they aren't ready for a dog :( )







More coming...

Passed out in Josh's lap on the way home:


SWEET baby in Josh's arms after a long day:



Awww man I love him :( He's approx 4-5 months old, maybe a Border Collie or Pointer mix (????????????). He was picked up as a stray with his brother and an unrelated pittie girl.

Here's the pit, Athena:

What a cutie pie! Love his soulful eyes! If you can't keep him, I'll bet he gets a good home in no time - how could anyone looking for a dog resist?

Oh Aly, you have helped save another precious pup. He is just adorable. :D So he is going to be a fairly large dog, then? He is so cute, I am sure you will be able to find a wonderful home for him. :)

07-18-2005, 09:08 AM
I can see why you are in love with him what a beauty. He looks like such a sweet dog. I love his eyes.

07-18-2005, 09:18 AM
Aly he is adorable! I can see why your heart belongs to him.

I bet he'll find a great home in no time with that cute face and great personality!

He's a sweetie :D

I saw an agility trial on Animal Planet last week. One of the dogs looked exactly like a grown up version of Norman. Of course he was phenomenal.

I'm thinking Norman will have all the smartness of a BC with a little of the laid back attitude of a regular dog. Whomever ends up with Norman will be very lucky.

That is exactly him! He is a pretty mellow puppy and mostly just quietly played with toys by my side or slept upside down, snoring away :D He gets little bursts of energy where he trots around, but they don't last long. He is EXTREMELY smart and I was able to teach him several things in just 2 and a half days. Ugh, he would fit in with my dogs perfectly. Even Lolly was okay with him. He actually SAT on her in the car and she didn't care!

More on him later.. I've gotta run to work.

What a cute puppy! Norman is so adorable, I love the expression on his face in this picture!

Norman is so cute! I wish I could take him! :)

07-18-2005, 05:18 PM
What a cutie!!!!

Seeing all these cute pictures really makes me miss having a dog around.
I hope you get a great home sweetie!

07-18-2005, 06:18 PM
Aw I wish you were closer because I would take him. He would fit in here with my 2 so great. I have such a soft spot for black and whites. I hope he gets a great home.

07-18-2005, 06:22 PM
Norman sleeps on his back & snores? LOL.:D I knew he was
a sweet character.:D

He is so cute!! I can see some of Seamus in him.

07-19-2005, 09:17 AM
Are you SURE you don't want to keep him? He is so very adorable and if he gets along with your dogs that well...... But, I know how it is. You can only pay for so many. I would have acres of dogs if it were possible. They are so great. I love that one with his stuffie. He looks so happy.

07-19-2005, 09:59 AM
Aly.. I really don't know how you do it. Your heart is so loving and caring to be able to help these fosters along their way. Norman is just absolutely to die for. He seems like the perfect pup and he will make someone very happy.

I hope that you are happy with the home he goes to when the time comes, hopefully it's someone you have chosen and agreed to.

Give him a big hug and kiss from me, Lolly, Reece, Shiloh, and Skylar, too. :)

07-19-2005, 10:35 AM
Who wouldn't want to adopt him and wake up to that face every day?! I hope he finds a great home soon. What a sweetie. Are you sure he isn't related to that sweet pittie?

07-19-2005, 08:50 PM
Ooooh! Aly, he's such a sweet doll! I love his cute lil face!:)

07-20-2005, 01:01 AM
Norman is just so gorgeous, a real beautiful looking pup.:)
