My Dogs

Original post made by Simply Sterling, San Ramon, on Apr 1, 2013

Several years ago, I was browsing on Craigslist when I scrolled through the pet column and saw the cutest pooch. She was a one year old female, black and white shih tsu–bichon fries, a “designer” dog that was being offered free. I had been longing for a dog but I hadn’t voiced my desire so I surprised my husband when I said I wanted a dog. Fortunately, he is very easy-going and agreed.

For anybody looking to adopt and needing help getting started, go to petfinder.com: Web Link . Put in your zip, companion animal type, breed, and age -- you'll get a listing of all such available animals, by distance from your location, with pics, descriptions and contact info.

You can also google-search for your breed with the search term 'rescue.'

And a gratuitous plug for a Bay Area outfit that helps the neediest of the needy (older dogs, who can be great choices, but have a tough time competing with young'uns on cuteness quotient) check-out Muttville, at Web Link.

I loves me some Craigslist for many things, otherwise.
