October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
Today we’ll be taking a break from my real estate related ramblings to talk about something near & dear to my heart. And I’ll be lucky if I make it through this post without crying. Here goes …
This beautiful puppy is Jester.
He is an Australian Cattle Dog/Shepherd mix. We adopted him when he was 4 years old, and he spent his remaining 10 years being a loving & devoted member of our family. He had a few quirks that we can only guess came from some kind of mistreatment with his previous owners, but they never kept him from always waiting at the door for us with a wagging tail to welcome us home. We were so lucky to have found this amazing dog at a shelter.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. If you’re considering adding a new member to your family of barking, 4-legged variety, please consider adopting one of the sweet & wonderful dogs that are anxiously waiting at a shelter for someone to take them to their forever home.
For the record, I cried the entire time I was writing this. It’s been over a year and a half since we lost Jester, and we still miss him terribly. We aren’t ready to love another one like that just yet, but when we do we’ll be heading right back to the shelter to find that next furry & fabulous member of our family.
How’s that for a disclaimer???
