Thanks for that post Ed.
Remdog was a 'found' dog. One of the best things that ever happened to me. Next came 'Stevie' who we rescued from an animal shelter.
Almost all of these animals at shelters are looking for nothing more than love and an opportunity to return that love a hundred fold. They very well might be the sweetest creatures on this earth, IMO.
I want to say more but I think I'll stop here 'cause I'll probably get too emotional about this.
