We adopted a dog today [View all]
First dog for the family. Our last cat passed Dec. 7 last year. The girl passed August 23 2017 - two days after the eclipse.
SPCA. $280 out the door. We bought everything we could at the SPCA shop and rounded up a bit. They don't sell food. Really really great people. My daughter has volunteered there.
I got there 15 minutes after my wife and daughter. They got to the SPCA when it opened at noon. They'd already looked at one dog but it was really high maintenance and not good with kids. Around the corner to our meeting room came this dog....and I KNEW we were going home with it. Mostly beagle and my wife LOVES beagles.
He was found in Hanover county north of Richmond. Transferred from Hanover to the Richmond SPCA on Monday.
About 3 years old. 28.6 pounds. Very well mannered. VERY quiet including walking. Seems to be housetrained. Understands "sit" but lays down. When I have gone into the downstairs 1/2 bath or into the garage he runs upstairs thinking I somehow MUST be upstairs. Hilarious.
We lucked out but then timing is everything.
