When people think about adopting a pet, they always think about all the rational reasons not to. How much work is it going to be? What if we need to go away? How expensive is it going to be? However, they don’t spend enough time thinking about all of the emotional benefits of adding a pet. It’s the best gift you can ever give to your family. That was me 6 years ago, when finally, after the family staying on me for a couple of years, I agreed to adopt a dog. So we took a trip to NEAS and quickly settled in on a Pomeranian mix named Cocoa (since renamed Foxy). It has been the best decision I’ve ever made. But equally the worst decision I ever made waiting so long. Foxy completed our family. Than you so much for helping us find our Foxy!
