When we adopted our dog, Disney, from a local animal shelter this past March, our family entered a whole new world of animal appreciation. We already had a love of animals, and enjoyed spending time with pets of all sorts, but after living with only one independent cat, bringing a puppy home became a major leap into pet parenthood for us. It’s hard to go to any shelter because Continue reading
