Exactly a year ago today (the Wednesday before Thanksgiving) I found out I was getting my first Corgi, Scout! My friend at work said I could come get her from the neighbor any time. Well, I decided to wait until after the weekend to get her since I was traveling and didn't want to take her on a long car ride first thing. Then, I decided to wait until Friday so I would have a weekend to get to know her before I had to work. So on December 3rd, I drove and picked up my dirty flea-filled dog with clumps of dead fur that needed brushed out, and took her to the pet store to bathe and brush her, took her to the vet for vaccines and a checkup, and she's been mine ever since! She's helped me through unemployment, moved with me to southern Indiana when I got my new job and knew no one in town, and always been there when I needed her. So much has changed in this last year, except for 1 thing, my little shadow that must be with me everywhere I go.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Enjoy the holiday with your family! (both 2 and 4 legged)
