After years of thinking about adopting a dog, we finally made the plunge, and adopted a dog. Meet Dunbar! We got her from a rescue, Enzo's Acres. Dunbar's mother was found wandering and pregnant in Central California with a big metal band around her neck and carabiner attached to it. The thought was that she was being used to breed bait dogs and escaped from her situation.
I named Dunbar after Captain Dunbar of Catch 22, a personal favorite book and character. I've read a lot of dog training books over the years in anticipation of adopting a dog, but boy did they not really communicate how much time goes in to raising these little pups. She's a great puppy, and someday will be a great dog!
