What a beautiful story. I am a huge dog lover and had a german shepherd until recently. I will definitely own more dogs but will wait til the time is right.

They really do become your best friends.

Thanks for the comment. I've very rarely been without a dog in my life but you are right the time has to be right.
I'm amazed @ what they do every day, like my lab just picked up a tree limb and drug it around for awhile like it was some huge prize!! LOL
