The Pick Family Expands… By Four Feet!!!

By Adam Pick on November 22, 2017

I have some great and fun news to share with our community!  The Pick family has expanded by four feet.  That’s right.  I am happy to introduce you to Bodie Pick, our new 16-week old puppy.  He also goes by “BoBo”, “Bear” and “Bodiferous”.

 

 

I’ve never had a dog before so this is all new for me.  So far, Bodie has been downright awesome.  He’s sleeping through the night and has yet to chew-up anything at our house.  Well, okay.  He did eat part of Robyn’s yoga mat this morning (and quickly threw up).  And, he did kinda gnaw on a table. But, who’s perfect?

Bodie loves being outdoors and he loves playing soccer…

 

 

And, Bodie loves jumping on top of me — especially if I have a treat in my hand.

 

 

As Bodie is part of our family, he is also part of your family.  Robyn (who may or may not be obsessed with Bodie) recently setup a Bodie Instagram account. Imagine that? An instagram for a puppy.  So funny.  Maybe Bodie can be our “Community” dog? What do you think?

Keep on tickin!
Adam

That’s so awesome Donna! On behalf of Robyn, thanks! I’m actually quite blown away. Bodie’s Instagram has 121 followers. Too funny!

Fyi, here’s a live shot of the Bear. He’s resting. It’s been a lonnnnng day. He got his final shots today at the vet. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/afdc64a251ffd5ca334cab77474ae678ce56024f708a920eee6c6a1e6fc5c62a.jpg

lol! He looks exhausted! Bodiferous–love it–we give our dogs nicknames too. We had a dachshund, Rylie, whom we called The Rylinator, among other things! Enjoy your little Bear. 🙂

Cute puppy. What breed is he?



Adam says on November 23rd, 2017 at 12:14 am

Thanks. Bodie is half golden retriever and half poodle. So, a Goldendoodle. Robyn, my wife, had heard that they do not shed. So far, no shedding. We’d love him even if he did shed though.

Voting for Bodie to join the Community…ruf! As I can attest, doggie love is the best medicine after heart surgery. Happy trails Bodie and may you melt or mend a lot of hearts along the way!

Awesome, Congrats! He’s adorable, Dogs rule!
