Let me note I’ve had these bad boys since I was about 12, and while they are not the latest and greatest & I keep saying someday I will get a nice pair...
Happy Tails  Puppy Jackpot is the saying I use for a dog who gets adopted into a great home. There seem to be a lot of winners in the Adirondacks.
