Sofi's enthusiastic grin says it all. We have a new member of our household : Hope. We adopted her from the Humane society. She is two year old lab mix. I've been resisting a dog for years, but Sofi's persistence paid off. Rosie escaped in the house and we've never seen (or smelt) her again. The Guinea pigs also didn't work out : too smelly.
I'll admit that we've already been on a hike with Hope and on many many walks and she seems pretty dag gummed perfect.
