This week we celebrated the 6 year anniversary of Nemo’s “gotcha” day. The day that I adopted him from Wright-Way Rescue. I have since adopted several wonderful dogs from Wright-Way, but Nemo was the first.
His litter had been given Christmas names like holly, wreath, candy-cane etc. They must have run out of creative ideas because Nemo’s original name was Ornament…really? Ornament? Ok, well not really a problem since I always change rescue dogs names when I adopt them. One of our mottos here in The Land of Misfit Dogs is “new life, new name!”
I’ll admit I did name him after the fish from the movie Finding Nemo. He was the same colors, and it seemed to fit him. Nemo is very sweet, and friendly with people and dogs alike. He is a favorite with people who visit. You can see the sweetness in his face.
Probably the thing I love most about him is seeing how much the other dogs love him.
Truly, everybody loves Nemo…
