Yes, pictures of Orion's little "big brother".
For those of you who don't know the story, Cadence (Orion and Echo's mommy) went into labor on the 2nd of July 2010. By the time she made it into the delivery room, one of the puppies had passed away. This was very sad for us. She was scheduled for a c-section that day. There were 3 other puppies born...named Chari, Delta and Echo. Poor Echo was the only male and he was born with his intestines on the outside of his body. So, before the embilical cord was cut, Echo had to have his belly opened up and the intestines put into place. The doctor did not say what his chances were.....but sent us home with 3 babies. When we went back in for the check up, the look on his face said it all. He did not expect Echo to survive. This little boy pulled off a miracle and captured my heart. If you know my story, I wanted another male bulldog. But Orion was the feisty female that came home with us the year before. My mom and her husband decided to sell one puppy and keep 2. Then my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and Echo grew up. He wanted to be the dominant male and was fighting with Chesty (his daddy). We tried to rehome him with different people, but none of the homes was a good fit for Echo. Echo definitely needed to be the only dog..and preferably no small children either. Thru the events that Lisa described, Echo found his new home. He is loved so much and we couldn't be more happy that the perfect family fell right into our laps. Kismet? I think so!
We are forever grateful to Lisa and Heath.
