Finally the answer to the clues! I have a new brother! Sonny traveled all the way from Arkansas to join our family. Mom found Sonny (aka Sunny Daze Ahead) on Petfinder.com. She looked and looked and looked before she finally found some dawg who was the right fit for our family.
Though Ziggy's shoes can't be filled, Sonny has brought his white boots and socks to us and will fill his own, new shoes!
Now, I'm a tough dawg to please and I am officially giving Sonny my Pedro seal of approval! So, Sonny Boy, welcome to our family!
