Did you know that October is Adopt-a-Dog month? Me either. However, I can say that I’m a big fan of adopted dogs. We’ve had two. Our first one had some issues, but we loved her. Grace was that that dog before kids who IS your kid, so she made us a family. We’ve had Shadow for about ten years now. You’d never believe that she’s that old, and everyone agrees that she’s the best dog ever.
We are definitely fans. If you are looking for a pet, check out your local shelters.
