On the subject of dogs. We adopted a no kill animal shelter canine last May, we've had her for about 14 months now. There she was, sitting all alone and quiet in her concrete cell, and very quiet while other dogs were barking their heads off. I walked by her several times, her eyes followed my movements, and I finally decided to ask a shelter worker if we could meet her alone in a room.
When she entered the shelter room, she was kind of aloof and scatterbrained, but that didn't last long, she took to us pretty quick.
We adopted her, and she was skin and bones. Now, she's gained some weight, and has fit in very nicely. She's my shadow, follows me nearly everywhere I go in the apartment or in our fenced yard. Yep, she's a keeper.
