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’.

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

Anniversary of Alma

A year ago today we had road tripped to Montana with Moses to meet “Winnie”, a purebred Newfoundland up for adoption through the Montana Companion Animal Network.  We’d found her through Pet Finder, and had been looking for an adoptable pup who would fit our household for months.

A year – and a name change – later, and this is where we are.

Nothing but a happy adoption story here.
