Hi, my name is Wally! I am 11 weeks old and have already faced down a massive hurricane and Nor'easter storm since coming home to Massachusetts. Even though I weigh a little less than a gallon of milk, I'm not afraid of extreme wind, rain, or snow! My parents say I am a puppy genius because it only took me a few days to sniff my way from our house to the park and to stop treating our rugs like my outhouse. I am called Wally because my dad grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, which is the birthplace of the American Revolution and home of transcendental hero Ralph Waldo Emerson, whom I was named after! Mr. Emerson once wrote, "For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness," and I'm the kind of pup who's always inspiring a smile! The truth is most people I meet think that I am named after the Boston Red Sox's mascot, Wally the Green Monster, which is pretty cool too, since I love to root for my home team!
