We lost both of our fur babies this year. To double the sadness, we lost them within two months of each other. I wasn’t sure if we were ready to open our home to another pup, but then we met Charlie and the rest is history. 

Experts say the holidays are the worst time to adopt because of the tempting yet poisonous treats, crazy crowds and chaos, and–of course–excessive traveling. I appreciate all that, but we ignored it and brought Charlie home the week before Thanksgiving! I was confident we could successfully get our holiday travel on with our pet in tow! So far, so good!
