I took this pic on our way up to the Cape. G-dog is SO good on long trips as long as she can lay down. She's like a little kid in that she'll fall asleep as long as it's highway driving.I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you all, unless you are a new visitor, that we adopted G-dog a year ago. We always knew when we brought a dog into our family that we would adopt. I was reminded of how important it is to consider adoption when I was out on Wed night. I was at a pet store (supplies, not selling pets) and they had some dogs there that were up for adoption with the foster parents. There was a little white and light brown pit puppy who was insanely cute. He was a mix and you could tell that he had a great personality; friendly and cuddly and would make a great addition to a family. Trouble is, he is tagged with that name: 'pit bull'. I really hope he gets adopted despite that strike against him. The only reason my heart didn't completely break was because he seemed to have a really nice foster Mommy. :)
PS: I have NOTHING against pure bred dogs or GOOD breeders. We had a Golden Retriever growing up and a German Shepard, both from excellent breeders. Keeping the breed strong by making sure the gene pool isn't too shallow is something good breeders do and I respect that.
