14. She's cute. My son's girlfriend has a dog that looks much like her

I call him Bentley the Bulimic Beagle. He has an eating disorder and if he eats too fast, he throws up.

12. Everybody wants the puppies, she'd been there a few weeks

 

It's a no kill shelter so that wasn't a concern, but she needed a home.

23. Pretty girl! Thank you so much for adopting an adult...

as you said, so many people want puppies, which are undeniably cute, but there are so many wonderful adult dogs who need loving homes.

to you and Katie! Give her a kiss on her forehead for me, right between her eyes in that soft, velvety little space.

Have you seen her run yet? Wonder if she has whippet speed?

lives, and not just the pups!
