Happy 3 Year Adoption Day

Happy Adoption Day!! Three years ago today, after months of searching for exactly the right dog to fit into our lifestyle, I brought home exactly the wrong dog. And I don’t know what I’d do without him.

  • Who would make a dirty, hairy mess out of the house?
  • Who would provide endless entertainment?
  • Who would introduce me to strangers?

Who else could possibly be my boy?

Happy 3rd Adoption Day (and 4th Birthday) to A.J.!

In the meantime, I’d also been looking at the Humane Society web site, and there was a dog at the adoption center at PetSmart who sounded pretty good.
