Ronon has made so much progress in the ten months since I brought him home.
The night we arrived in Philly together, he was so terrified, untrusting, and untrained, that I could barely hold onto him during the half block struggle from the rental car to the front of my apartment building. For several months afterwards, I lived with a constant feeling that I wasn’t going to be able to keep him.
Two months ago, we went on a 2,000 mile road trip together. Three days ago, he earned his first sports title (BCAT). He has learned to trust me, and he takes many new situations in stride.
Our journey has only just started. I’ve been posting photos and updates on Instagram and Facebook, but I decided today that a transformation as epic as his is shaping up to be deserves a dedicated journal, hence this website.
At the moment, this is the first post, but I’m going to back date all the historical posts as I write them. I hope our current and future friends will enjoy, and benefit from, Ronon’s story.
