"Team Irving, Here is Diego in his new back yard with his New Papaw. They are soooooooo Happy. My Dad said to tell you guys thanks for his new buddy and all you do. Cause if not for you guys he fears he and Diego would have never found each other.

"He is SPOILED. My Dad even installed a new full-glass storm door so Diego can see him while he is working in front yard. There are lots of cats in the neighborhood and as we all know letting cats live is not Diego's strong point, so just taking that out of the equation.

"He has a new Sealy Poster Pedic baby bed mattress with memory foam, a new Dallas Cowboy Blanket and a box full of new toys except he likes to chew on my dad's boots so Dad gave them to him and now has a new pair.

"He has grandkids next door to play with, and one is a boy which is his favorite. He gets special game day dinners when he watches the Rangers with his Papaw and Uncle Ben. Even though I have given lectures about dog food only, I hear his favorite part of the day is mornings with consist of scrambled eggs, sausage, with a little dog food mixed in.

"Will keep you guys up dated from time to time and I wish you all could see the two of them together, It truly brings tears to your eyes. Thanks again Team Irving YOU ROCK!!!!!!"
