Truth be told, I’ve never been a dog person. I wasn’t necessarily afraid of them or didn’t like them, but I never felt like any dog vibed well with me. So I kept a comfortable distance and continued to prefer babies over dogs. However, that all changed in January of 2017.
Our lives were forever changed when we met our little Gracie from a rescue. Although she was the very first puppy we ever considered, she wasn’t the first puppy we “interviewed.” After meeting a few crazy, young breeds of puppies, and not not feeling 100% confident, little Gracie was carried out to us. She calmly walked over to me, stared into my eyes, and then crawled into my arms for a hug. Without hesitation, I knew in my gut that this little pup was special and I wasn’t leaving the shelter without her.
