LindaPet's Story or Bio. Please provide some background information : name, age, where your pet came from, personality, any unique characteristics, etc.
Houdie was 11 months old when we rescued him from the ARF (Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation in Walnut Creek) in 2009. Our old Queensland Red Heeler had passed away in April, and although we thought we'd wait a while before getting another dog, but we couldn't stop looking at dogs up for adoption in several shelters around the Bay. When Michael went to ARF, there were three red heelers in residence....one look at Houdie was all it took to win Michael over. Houdie got his name as he was an escape artist when we first brought him home...thus, Houdini was christened, and he's never left our side since.
Houdie is ALWAYS ready for a ride or a walk...he hikes with us daily, as well as making the rounds of the neighborhood with our neighbors on their evening stroll. He loves to lie in the sun in the driveway and watch all of the neighborhood walkers go by...not everyone knows Michael and me, but the whole neighborhood knows Houdie
