i bought him in december of 2003, he was my christmas present to myself! i have been through so much with this dog, he is one of the very biggest parts of my life. since i've had him he has survived being hit by a car, has been poisoned by eating a starfish on the beach, jumped from on top of a 20+ foot wall AND a rock face in the woods (both times i thought he'd broken all of his legs!) and he survived an attack from one of my stepdad's pitbulls. he definitely keeps me on my toes and i look forward to another 5+ years with him. :)
here is a little barrage of pictures because i am crazy about him!
this was an interesting day lol bam had jumped into a levee and got a catfish hook in his paw and was tangled in the line. while my boyfriend and i were trying to free him, my other dog bubba ran through, snagged the line and hooked my boyfriend in the hand with another catfish hook. although he screamed louder than i'd ever heard, bam was fine throughout the whole ordeal. :)
this is from when he was hit by a car in 2006. his hip was dislocated. he STILL doesn't use that leg!
oh and i got him a basketball for his birthday. he LOVES them. :)
