Over the weekend, I became the owner of another dog. He can never replace my dear Cassie, but I missed having the companionship of a loving animal around. I adopted him from the SPCA. He is a wonderful little guy who just wants attention and love.

Having adopted him on St. Patrick’s Day, we thought an Irish name would be fitting; his name is Doogan, which means “dark lad.” He is a pug/terrier/? mix, solid black with black eyes and only one small white patch on his chest. He has added joy to my life already. I’m so glad to have found him.
