We love our Willie (formerly 'Timon') so much! He's the perfect dog for us

and has a great life. Before we moved from Galveston to Houston, we used to

walk with him on the beach every day. His favorite thing was chasing all

the sand crabs and sniffing out all the beach creatures. Now walks at

Hermann park have to suffice, but hey, Squirrels!!! We did have a little

scare with him in 2014 when he had to have back surgery for

intervertebral disc disease, but we're happy to say he made a full recovery

and is back to his old self. Although he's advancing in age, complete with

a face full of grey, he's still so youthful and exuberant. He loves to play

"who's a puppy" and loves chasing after his toy squirrel and beaver.
