With all these changes, why not another one right? That is my reasoning behind our puppy search. I feel like it is time for us and I have convinced DJ! I never realized, however, how hard it was to adopt from a shelter. I have to sign a huge form probably longer than a college application. Then there are house visits and screenings. What happened to -we have a dog that you must take or we will euthanize it? Yeah, I know that this is a big commitment and they want you to be sure, but for me it is a deterrent.
