Today was a very special day for my alma mater---the Bucks County SPCA. They were founded on Dec 18 1912 making today their 100th anniversary! It was on an early summer evening---June 6,1995---that my Dad drove to the Bucks SPCA to adopt me. His old dog,Lady,(also an alumni of this shelter)had arthritus and wasn`t up to long hikes anymore. Dad had an Alaska trip coming up in just a few months and needed a hiking companion. He adopted me and over the next 5 years we shared many adventures together,trips along the Appalachian Trail,one trip out to the Grand Canyon,and 5 trips to Alaska. Sadly I had to leave my Dad due to an unfortunate accident on our 2000 Alaska trip when I was struck by a car in Montana as we were coming home. I am forever grateful to Dad for the wonderful years that we had together and also grateful to Bucks SPCA for making my adoption possible. I`ve posted some anniversary pix on my page.
