Sofie (aka Glory)
Each day I am thankful for Sofie (aka Glory) being in my life. It is with great sadness that I write to you today. On Christmas Eve my wife of 27 years went into cardiac arrest, and the EMTs were unable to revive her. It as totally unexpected. She now no longer has to endure the agony of depression, anxiety and back pain that she fought for several years. In the 15 months that Sofie has been with us, she and my wife bonded from the beginning. Being housebound Jan spent most days sitting on the sofa watching TV. Whenever I wondered where Sofie was, I found her curled up next to Jan, her chin often resting on Jan's knee! Sofie brought much companionship, comfort, and love to my suffering wife daily. In lieu of flowers, Jan's sister and I requested contributions to Woman' Board Depression Treatment Research Center and Almost Home Foundation. $250 was collected for Almost Home Foundation.

We recently adopted Gamora now Meela, we had our beloved lab Sydney for 12 yrs and didn't know how we could love any dog more until we laid our eyes on Meela. We are all sooo in love with her, including our neighbors. We couldn't be happier to have her. We are so happy with our experience with our 1st adoption. Also her foster parents Sara and Mark were terrific and we are grateful for their involvement in her life and ours. Dawn Yarger November 16, 2015
We adopted Brigitta from the Bloomingdale Petco in January 2015. We already had 2 older dogs who I adore & didn't want a 3rd (mostly because I knew my 2 older dogs wouldn't get along with a puppy in the house) but my two young children asked Santa for a puppy for Christmas & apparently so did my husband, so I complied. I wanted my husband to actually pick the puppy out so that if she becomes a hassle I could at least blame him. When I met the little "Shar-Pull" terrier mix (which is what we call her), I was instantly hooked; instead of being the kids dog, she has become my dog now. I play with her every chance I get, let her cuddle with me every night & trust me, she is a cuddler. Very energetic & full of wonder; everything amazes her. I've never had a dog like her before. My older dogs still don't like her but that doesn't stop her from trying to play with them! I never what I was missing until she came into my life.
