10 Years Adopted


Its all in the tag....




--------------------

I can't believe that 10 years ago my "want a puppy" feeling led me to the most incredible dog ever!  I have always heard the expression you don't get the dog you want, you get the dog you need.  That could have never been more true back in 2003 when I took in a "useless" little breeder female named "Molly".  I knew nothing about rescue or rehabilitation but when I held that frightened little girl in my arms I knew I couldn't leave her behind in that tiny kennel.  

Mollie Jo has taught me many things over the past decade; take a chance on the underdog, be patient, treats are our friend, a dog can NEVER have too many collars (or tags), get excited about the little things in life (yard sales, shopping, and walkies), play with toys every chance you get, always celebrate a good meal by rubbing your head and it is a grand thing to have earned the love of a dog.  

When I come home from work and am greeted by her wagging, whining and flipping a toy through the air, when I see how excited she is to go shopping, or when I see her totally relaxed napping in my recliner I am  happy that I took a chance on that "useless" dog.  

I hope for 10 more with you my Jo Jo!
