I’m Mimi Rosen from Upstate New York. I live with my husband, Michael, a two-year old Boxer/Lab mix named Ripple, and our cats Pebbles and Bam Bam.The Australian Shepherd mix pictured with us is our dog, Zach. He passed away several weeks ago. He was five when he came to live with us.
Zach was awesome.
We are ready to adopted another dog – a six month old border collie mix that we will call Cassidy. She will be our fifth dog from rescue. She was pulled from a kill shelter by a group called Crossing Paths www.xpar.org. This is an organization that saves dogs from shelters in Alabama, which are busting at the seams with unwanted pets. People from groups like Crossing Paths work hard to find their rescues forever homes in other parts of the country. What champions! They were also wonderful in helping us choose the right dog.
The purpose of this blog is to chronicle Cassidy’s journey (and ours) for one year as she joins our family, and to provide information and fun facts about dogs. It’s also my small way of drawing attention to the rescue organizations who help so many families find wonderful, loving pets that would otherwise have been euthanized.
I invite others to comment and add their experiences.
Cassidy will join our family on December 15.
