Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter!

I can’t believe it’s been seven years since I adopted Porter from Homeward Trails. Seven years! I remember sitting in the front driveway of his foster parents’s home and watching Porter and his two siblings play in the yard. I put each of them through a series of personality tests, from snuggling them to seeing if they would chase me while I held their favorite toy.

The tests were all over, and I was just watching them all interact together. Porter broke off from the pack, shuffled over to me, and sat in my lap.

I knew that I was going to take him home, and that he was going to be my #1 son forever.


If you or someone you know is interested in adding a pet to your family, please please please consider adopting from a rescue agency or shelter. There are many wonderful animals that need your help, and buying/”adopting” from a breeder means there is one less home for an animal whose only “defect” was not having a bullshit piece of paper.

The love and companionship I get from my three dogs outweighs any pedigree. Please adopt.

Happy adopt-a-versary, Porter Bear, and may we celebrate many more.
