Our daughter adopted her two weeks ago. Ellie's' owners after about a year decided they did not want her anymore. They had moved into a upscale neighborhood and home here in the area. The Dad decided the dog needed to go! He didn't want the dog in the house, and didn't think the yard and neighborhood was the right place for her. So "A" (DD) took over her ownership and care. This should be a reminder to all of us who plan to get a pet, not to get one, unless you are really going to care and look after it as you should.
So we are now a family, who at one point had two Boxers and a Aussie,
to a family of one Aussie and TWO Golden Retrivers!
(Things will be great as long as Bama & Ellie don't come to live with the King of Fernleaf.)
