Adopt a Shelter Dog - They'll Thank You
October 21, 2010
I adore my mutt, Truman. He wormed his way into my heart at the animal shelter those many moons ago when he fell asleep in my lap. As my breath caught and butterflies swirled in my tummy, I knew he was the perfect dog for me. What I didn't catch was him sleeping with one eye open, as he plotted his escape from the facility. He waited until the i's were dotted and ink dry on our adoption before revealing what a crazy man he truly was. In the first year, he destroyed our books, tinkled on my husband’s homework (that was funny!), and conditioned us to sleepless nights. What a joy!
If you’d like to be similarly blessed by an animal companion, October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Do your research on different breeds, and take an online quiz to know which ones would be a good fit for your family and lifestyle. Happy hunting!
