well, mary e wore us down.
we said no more dogs...but she's been pretty persistent since buddy died that we get another dog. "how about for my birthday???" she asks coach sal...at a weak moment.
so...we went to pethelpers (just to look, mind you), and came home with spanky!
he was found roaming around with another dog and was brought to the shelter. it was obvious that he'd had a previous owner. sweet and friendly and about 5 years old...
