We got Lucy in June 2012, exactly one month and 5 days after moving into our house. We couldn't have pets in our apartment, and so we knew that when we moved into our own home, we wanted to adopt a rescue dog right away. My parents adopted their dog, Sophie, from the Sterling Animal Shelter in Sterling, MA, and we knew we'd rescue from the same shelter.
And, of course, the after party snuggles.
Are we the only ones who celebrate our dog's adoption day? It's okay, we understand that we're "those" dog people. :)
