Second Anniversary of Alma

Two years ago today, the Husband and I made our road trip south of the border to Montana to adopt a dog from the Montana Companion Animal Network.

After months of looking at Pet Finder and local ads for adoptable dogs – and a lot of patience – we gave Alma her ‘forever home’.

The forever home comes with Canadian winters, but she doesn't seem to mind.

Don’t let anyone tell you pure-bred dogs don’t also need adopting.
