I am having a very hard time believing that three years ago today I marched my butt up to the Humane Society of North Texas and impulsively adopted a wirey matted canine named Coco. Watson, as he came to be known, belonged to a family who lived on a farm who couldn't care for him anymore due to an ill family member. I had never owned an adopted dog before and I'm confident I will never buy from a breeder again. There's a special kind of friendship you have with an adopted dog that can't easily be put into words. I do know, however, that Watson knows I saved him. He thanks me everyday with kisses and cuddles and I thanked him right back with a special Sprinkles doggie cupcake today.
If you haven't considered adopting a pet, please look into it and see if it's right for you and your family. There are thousands of pets looking for homes and I know there's one out there that will love you as much as you love them!
If you're not into the whole canine companionship kind of thing at least consider adopting a pooch because they make great home accessories*. Just look at these homes...
*I in no way, shape or form endorse you buying a dog because they make your home look better. That was my lame attempt at a joke.

Sally adopted. It's obviously cool.

He and Watson clearly got the message that sitting in human seats is pretty rad.
|Kyle Knight of Knight Moves is a foster mom to pups. |
She obviously gets super karma points from the canine community.
And there you have it. Behind every designer is a sweet puppy. Go get yourself one.
