It seems like just last month Ninja and I were at the pound visiting the puppies to be adopted. We have this thing where when we are bored and don’t want to spend money, we head over to the pound. We had always hoped to find the dog of Ninja’s dreams there (since I already have Opie), but we never could really find one that fit our family. Until, of course, we ran into this little thing.
