In the words of his mom,
"Alphie is WUNDERBAR!"
"He is one smart, active, happy little guy. He loves his toys."
"He is very loved and has many friends at the park."
"The cart was at Best Buy. They said if I can fit him in it, he can come inside. Well, good idea at the time. Alphie thought otherwise and jumped ship."
"He has completely rescued us... We absolutely adore him."
Alphie's mom and I talked on the phone the other day and for all he's been through, he is an unbelievably well adjusted dog. His separation anxiety is almost non existent. When he's left home his biggest crime is removing the cushions from the couch. He can be seen, at the window, waiting for the return of those he loves. Alphie loves kids and playing at the park with other dogs. He's allowed off-leash now.
I'll forever be grateful to our furiends in blog land who supported and encouraged me, throughout this journey; for the people at the Bernese Mountain Dog Club who networked to find Alphie this wonderfully loving home. And for Alphie's family, for opening the hearts and home to him, and for keeping me in the loop and connected.
I know that every day and every night Alf is living and loving happily ever after and dreaming the sweet dreams that every dog deserves.
If you're a new visitor to our blog, The Berner (now known as Alphonso Bernard Jacob Scout Billy Bob Berner)was a semi-feral dog trying to survive in the Mohave Desert.
Through the Pawer of the Paw, Alf has a family of his own. He's living the good life, well-loved and happily ever after, in sunny SoCal.
The Berner's story can be read in the posts listed below, in chronological order. Or Alf's story can be read by clicking his picture on my side bar.

We're still having multiple problems with blogger. Comments are enabled, but... Also, I have no idea where all those links came from.
