    Sparky's Story / 12-27-10

    My husband and I adopted little Sparky from the humane society in January 2010. I still believe to this day there was a reason we got this dog. We had talked about getting a dog for a while but our living circumstances were not the best as we were living in a basement apartment. However, one day in January I was sitting in the library of my pet friendly college when a girl walked in with a little puppy. Right then and there I knew it was the time for us to get a dog.

    Sampson's Story / 12-17-10

    I want to tell you the story of Sampson, the blue-heeler/Australian shepherd mix. (You knew him as Blue, but since we already had a pet by this name, we had to choose something new!) Sammy came to us originally as a foster. At the age of four months, my husband and I had planned on keeping him for a few weeks while he found his Forever People. He had been the victim of abuse, and sometime before he landed in our family, his rear leg had been broken and never properly set.
