We have added a dog to the family. A rescue dog.
Who knew this would happen?
But it all began when a stray dog followed my daughter into the house and we had to keep her overnight until the SPCA opened the next day. The dog was inquisitive, smart, curious, and independent. Rather like a cat and we love cats.
If the dog was not claimed by the owner, we were determined to adopt her. But she was.
And we were in quest of a Shiba Inu of our own.
We filled out several on-line applications for a rescue dog and were contacted by a man in New Jersey who runs the NJ Shiba Inu Rescue. We made the drive on Sunday to meet a possible dog and decided he was perfect and brought him home.
His name is Kanji and he is smart -- it took no time for him to learn that the cat Lemony is not a TOY.
Addendum: This dog did not last. He bit us several times. We had to return him to the shelter.
