I'm a first time dog owner and adopted my dog Mickey, from a great place called Old Dog Haven. They work in finding homes for older dogs. Mickey was either 8 or 9 when I got her and it was love at first sight. I'm a lifelong cat owner so it took some time for me to figure out what do you do exactly with a dog. That didn't take long though and I take her with me everywhere on the weekends. There's a huge state park a couple miles from my house where you can have the dogs off-leash (well, at least everyone does). There's always lots of great dog-owners there w/every kind of dog imaginable. The dogs get to romp around 6 miles of open forest and field.
I also have 2 cats currently, Charlie who is my big, orange tabby guy and Missy, my little black sweetie. I got Charlie from our local PAWS when he was 4 and Missy who is 3 from a couple who were splitting up. Charlie is all about the love and Missy is the talker and so sweet and a MAJOR drooler!
So hello to all in Pet Talk. Charlie was also Pet of the Day, Jan 3, 2005.
