Hi, I came across this site a couple of months ago and it has become my favorite. It is nice to hear from people who love their animals as much as I do. It was after I found an abandoned puppy (September 2000) and took her in and raised her that I started to realize how many dogs were in need of loving homes. My husband and I hope to one day own some land and open a sanctuary for abused and abandoned dogs. Well, it is nice to meet all of you and thanks for all of the information.
