Almost 8 years ago, a beautiful black puppy found her way to our home. A few months before that, I had stated firmly that no new animals would be taken in by me (we already had three dogs) because it meant an additional commitment which would overwhelm my already busy life.
Our son had recently gone away to college and I was stepping down as president of the local Chamber of Tourism. I thought I would be enjoying a lot of free time so that I could find a new, fun project. Lila Sofia (her name) has definitely added fun to our lives and I am happy that no one ever pays attention to me when I say I can’t add another thing to my plate! Dogs are, after all, my bestest friends!
