After being without a dog for the first time in several decades (most of the time having had multiple dogs), I thought about going dogless when Mitzi died in March. What was I thinking?
I didn't go searching, but as usual a dog that was just the right fit found me with a prod from a friend who follows a particular shelter's facebook page. So, after a couple of trips to the mainland and several interviews and visits (that shelter has an amazingly thorough adoption process), I brought home my new companion. Please welcome Maggie to ODO - my tenth ODO dog since joining in 2005 (not counting my fosters)!
She is thought to be about seven, a very timid girl but gaining confidence daily. You can read more about her on my blog https://mylifewiththecritters.blogspot.ca/
