Every day a person can learn from an experience or mistake. I learned two lessons this week. The first lesson came when taking four small kittens and two kennels of adults from my house to have their professional pictures taken at York Adopt a Pet.The lesson was when you take said kittens home, be certain you are not accidently taking a fifth kitten home. Especially when it is a black and white little female who looks exactly like the little black and white male kitten that you are fostering.

His name is Amos, at least that is what it was when he was a York Adopt-A-Pet. Sometimes names change when forever families get to know the new member of their family better. Tug was Tanner when he sheltered there. Anyway, I would like you to meet Amos and tell you his story.

Losing Shoe was tough, but no harder than the other dogs of mine that have gone on before him. One thing I have learned through the years is that a dog’s life is much too short.

As I have said many times every adoption is special, but then along comes an EXTRA special adoption. But let me start at the beginning.

The legacy left by the amazing Shoe-----By Gail Nordlund

What can you say about a dog who made you smile just by looking at him? A dog who never knew a stranger and loved anyone who would rub his belly. A dog who relished the job of greeting each and every visitor to his second home, York Adopt a Pet, and just ate up all the love – and treats! – that came his way.
