Gremlin was a stray, We got him from someone that could not keep him. I called home to tell my husband we had a new addition to the family, a little dog. His reply was "you better not bring that dog home." When he got home from work he told our daughter not to get to attached to him because we were not going to keep him, because he was the ugliest dog he'd ever seen. We went Hot Rod's and Harley's and my daughter found a new home for him which was my fifth grade teacher. When we told my husband that we had found a new home for him and were getting ready to give him away he said we could keep him and now he says this is the best dog we have ever had. He has brought great love and joy to our family.
