We Are Family

Mom and I met over 12 years ago. I was at a pet store that was having an adoption day through Homeward Bound. Mom had her eye on a very mellow dog that was walking around without a leash but thought she might be a little big. But then she saw me. I had just been placed in a very small pen with 3 huge dogs, who wouldn't leave me alone. Mom got me out of there and we hung out for awhile. She was torn between me and this other dog. Well it turns out that this other dog was actually my dog Mom. Isn't that weird. She didn't look anything like me. But I won over my Mom's heart. I was already 8 months old and I had been adopted by several other families but for some reason or another they gave me up. I was beginning to think I'd never have a family who would love me and want me to be with them forever. Well I found my family that day. It was tough at first as I was so afraid that I would be sent back again. I had separation anxiety for a long time. But here we are 12 years later and Mom still adores me.
