A little good

When traveling, I like to pick stuff up stuff for my dogs. So, when I was in Maine, we stopped at a place called Planet Dog- which has LOADS of cool dog stuff. I saw that there was a grooming station, and peeked over the barrier to coo at the dogs.

I chatted with the gal who works there, and spotted an ADORABLE chow/shiba inu named Gigi. She's less than 30 lbs, and sweet as all get-out. And, available for adoption, it seems.

"We've got two dogs," I told the gal. "And we live in California. There's no way we could adopt a dog out here."

But then, I started thinking. People from all over read my blog. People, maybe even, in (or near) South Portland, Maine. So here it is:

I love my dogs. Adopting Niki and Elphie was the best thing I have ever done. They are incredible companions, they make me smile, and they keep me on my toes. They're also a little expensive side and loads of responsibility. Think children with much less talking back.

If you've ever thought about getting a dog(s), and you have the extra time to devote to them, please do adopt one.

And, if you happen to be around Portland, Maine, go into Planet Dog and meet Gigi. She's a sweet girl who needs a home.

(If you do adopt her, send pictures!)


  1. Oh, I wish! That would be so nice but I might have a kitty coup on my hands if I did that.

  2. Getting a dog that shares your mom's name just wouldn't do, though. Just wouldn't do. Ouch.
