I thought you'd like to know that Pearl, our new black lab mix puppy, is happy and active in her new home. In fact, she's a Jersey girl now -- hello from Bergen County, NJ. We adopted Pearl from the SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, NY. My wife and I had to wait in line two hours for our choice of puppies to adopt, and we knew Pearl was "the one" as soon as we got in the room.
Our boys are seven and ten years old and they adore Pearl. She's very playful and she loves the long walks we take her on in the neighborhood, but she's also happy to just hang out. She already has a running feud going with a rabbit that likes to frequent our back yard, and this has been fun to watch. We're still working on the housebreaking, but then again we had to do that once upon our time with our boys too, so hopefully we'll notch our third straight success in that department.
Thank you so much, not only for Pearl but also for all of the good work that you do.
