Yes our lives were going along quite nicely in the "dog" department.
We only have one furry family member left and he is 15 years old , so my husband and I were looking toward some "dog free" time. Maybe just a few years?
Funny how fate comes along and changes your plans.
Due to requests, here is a photo of our newset family member "Missy".
She is a 12 month old Labrador.
A neighbour across the street no longer wanted her as she was "too much".
"Did we want her"?
I swear no matter where I go, what I do - troubled animals always head my way.
There goes another 12 years!
Note: Every year thousands of pets become "unwanted". With dogs it is usually around 12 months of age when they have outgrown their puppy stage and are no longer considered "cute" by some.
I urge everyone to consider the commitment it takes to raise a pet for life.
