Back in June of 1998 I adopted Jasper (a.k.a. Peanut) from the shelter. When I first met him he was on hold for another potential owner but I returned the next day and he was available again. I took him home that night and he has been there for me ever since. We have moved several times over the years and he has gained some cat and dog siblings along the way. Hard to believe it has been over 15 years but he just had a checkup and is doing great. 🙂
