At work today there was a beautiful golden retriever female (looked just like Dixie!). The person who brought her in apparently had got her from a shelter, and didn't know anything about her previous owners. The poor dog had this huge scab on her nose, and her front paws were declawed! Why in the world would anyone remove the nails off of a dog? That's ridiculous! Poor dog! Such a sweetheart too, just full of wiggles, hehe.
