Merry Christmas, indeed.

We adopted Mocha, an AmStaf mix mutt, in May 2010. She was our first dog as adults and we had our hands full. We don't know her story before she came to the rescue that we adopted her from. She had some manners, but she was very stubborn and headstrong. Actually, she still is! She loves to play, and she doesn't always mind us.
My neighbor, Nevis, was very ill and in hospice care. Her daughter, Donna, would "borrow" Mocha from time to time just to have something joyful in a house not exactly brimming with excitement. Mocha would cheer up Nevis and Donna every time they saw her. Even in the later stages of dementia, Nevis remembered Mocha. She would ask, "Where is that dog? I miss the dog." One day we were over visiting and Nevis had her prosthetic leg off because it was bothering her. Mocha, this goofy and hyper dog, went over and crawled up on the footstool and began licking where the prosthetic leg would go. Just a gentle lick like, "I know this isn't normal. Maybe I can fix it." I looked over and Donna had tears streaming down her face.
Last summer, Donna was ready to get a dog of her own. She was tired of living in the house alone. Her first choice? A beautiful little pit. Why? Because she saw in Mocha that pitties are not monsters.

We adopted Mocha around Memorial Day. Does that count?
Adopting around the holidays, when you have more time at home to help them get adjusted makes some sense. It's a personal decision, though, since some people don't need any more stress around this time of year.

Jessica Alba just got hotter in my book ;) It's good to see all the celebs who celebrate the breed!

Way to go. Now I'm sitting here in my cubicle at work, a grown man, with tears in my eyes. Thank God Susie and Ms. Lawrence found each other. Like the magnet on my car asks, "Who rescued who?"
