How does one "get" a dog? Is "get" even the right word? Does one "get" a dog? Or are we "gotten?" Do we adopt? Purchase? Choose? Rescue? Find? Or do they find us? Choose us? Rescue us?
As I head into the summer all wide-eyed, with an amazing daughter and a new home (with a fenced-in yard), I find it harder and harder to field my daughter's often-asked question, "Daddy? When can we get another dog?”
So now what? Do I look in the classifieds? Do I Google the last breed I saw in a movie? Do I go to the local shelter?
Well, to start my search, I reached out to Kristin Burgess, the Adoption Advocate at the Planet Dog Company Store in Portland to request the "Dog Adoption Days of Summer" schedule. We invite rescue organizations from throughout New England to bring dogs in need of a home to our Company Store.
It is always a big event and a big deal to us. As you can imagine, the energy created from matching numerous dogs with humans is incredibly positive and always a thrill to witness. And this year, it looks like I just may be one of those humans. Ahhh, so excited for the Dog Adoption Days of Summer.
I figure this is a great place to start – and, we would love to hear your story of exactly “who chose who” when you and your 4-legged best friend found each other.
Please see below for our Summer schedule and keep your eyes peeled on this blog to follow the evolution. I hope to see you there.
