Forever Home Dog Rescue is a wonderful organization that is really doing the work of angels. They take in strays, mainly from the south and get them homes. All the dogs that no one really wants. That's how we found Penny. They don't have a facility, it is completely done by the work of volunteers. They foster and place all the dogs that are looking for their forever home. We got an email a few weeks ago about a fund-raiser at Pizzeria Uno at the local Mall. Come in, eat dinner, and 20% of the check goes to Forever Home. Well, down to the Mall we go, we stopped to talk to Jean and the crew and signed up for some raffles, and looked at pictures. And there was Rocky. A little dachshund mix, short little legs and big ears, and we were sold. We had to wait until the next adoption day (Sunday) till we could go and meet him. So we looked at the picture and dreamed of bringing him home. Sunday finally got here, and to Petsmart we went. Penny, Kevin and I, looking for a new member of the family. And there was Rocky. He was adorable, and stubborn, and pig headed, and whiny and thought that Penny was a lovely lady, if you know what I mean. I looked at Kevin and He looked at me and said, I don't want to wake up to Penny getting humped in the middle of the night. And frankly I didn't either. So we put Rocky back, my heart broke a little, but I didn't want Penny to be traumatized in her own home either.

But it'll get better. I know it will. I'll have a house of crazy dogs that love each other dearly, and then we'll add a baby and upset the whole thing again! Lord, bless this house of mongrels.
