We felt that Brinkley needed a playmate so we started looking at local rescues for a dog. Desiree stumbled on a litter in Surrey rescued from a Saskatchewan farm. We were told they were Berneses crossed with Border Collies. When we arrived one of the puppies started cuddling with Desiree, so she was immediately sold.
We named him Wilson after the volleyball to stick with our tradition of naming our pets after Tom Hanks movies.
