One year ago today we picked up this sweet girl and brought her home. I'll never forget that night; the excitement, stress and happiness. It didn't take her long to settle in, and it was so wonderful watching her gain confidence. She became known as "the friendliest dog in the neighborhood", and always lived up to it. She made friends with everybody, and you'll see her pictured with two of her favorite buddies. She lives for car rides and belly rubs, and loves nothing more than to snuggle close to me and fall asleep. She has the sweetest, most gentle personality of any dog I've ever met.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to rid her of her scratching, but are continuing to work hard to find a treatment that works. Despite it all, she always seems happy and smiley. I never knew I could love a dog so much until she came along, and I hope that she feels that.

Looking forward to the next year, and all the others after that…
