Bishop at 1 year old. 2011

Introducing my newly adopted dog, Bishop! He's a young German-Australian Shepard mix.  I picked him up this past Sunday at Three Rivers Rescue located in Snoqualmie, WA.

Classified as a stray, the original owner threw him and his brother out of a car onto a deserted road. An eye witness driving behind the group, managed to rescue the dogs and brought them to TTR.

Since taking him in, I'm amazed how much of a cuddler he turned out to be. Not that he had much choice ;) He's great to walk on a leash, enjoys the company of other dogs and people. At home however, he can become a bit of a worry wart. I think this simply stems from being plopped into a brand new environment. Since living here, he's quickly adjusting to the hustle and bustle of Seattle city life. He's discovering new sounds and moving objects that surround him such as: cars, buses, cyclists, construction workers...and their jack-hammers to name a few. 

I look forward to all our adventures and I hope you meet him soon!


  1. He looks so sweet. I thought you were going to name him Pixel... Is Bishop a name you gave him?

  2. It was the name he was given at the rescue shelter. I'm happy with it!
