HI Rubi -- My family consists of me + seven mostly geriatric rescued dogs. Smallest (though not in appetite) is a Beagle; biggest are a couple of Shep Xs, a yellow Lab and a black Lab X. Toss in one ancient Dalmatian and a Basset ... am I up to seven yet?
They're with me for life, though as the numbers decline naturally I won't take in more till the level drops below four, which is where I'll hold. So when the group reaches PDX, yes, it's likely our paths will cross in some dog-friendly spot -!
Hi Rubi! Welcome...I visited your site yesterday (via twitter), and have to say--what a great thing you do! :-) I have three dogs myself. The newest addition is from the humane society only a week ago (hound mix). I love your photo...I am going to the coast with my dog family next weekend and I can't wait! :-)
