Last Saturday we visited the Fallen Timber shelter to walk the dogs as usual. There were a number of dogs that needed a profile picture, and the first on the list was a German Shepherd/Akita mix. Her name is Alice. She was such a gentle yet confident dog. Great on a leash, and made the sweetest face when we offered treats. Over the next two hours we kept switching dogs. Neither me nor Bradley said much about her. Not until we went out to eat later that night. We had both secretly wondered how it would be to have a dog like her. The shelter was closed until Wednesday, but when the clock turned 11AM, we called the shelter and told them that we would like to adopt her. Tomorrow, Friday, Bradley is going out to Elizabeth to pick her up. It is going to be a life-changing experience and it is exciting.
