We had been wanting to get dogs for a while, and we finally had decided on two dogs to adopt from a rescue organization called Saving Great Animals. We filled out the adoption application and sent it in, only to find that the dogs we had chosen had already been adopted. The rescue organization said that they had two dogs that we might like. We weren't sure, but we agreed to meet them. We had to wait up until 10:30 pm to get them, because they had come up from California and they had had to make several other stops to drop off other dogs in Oregon and Tacoma. When we finally saw the yellow Penske truck pull up at Northgate Mall in Seattle, we were excited to meet our new family members. We watched as other people got their dogs, and finally they let our dogs out of the crate that they had been sharing for two days straight. Peri ran out straight into my mom's arms and Doodle followed behind. We took them for a walk and then we went home, staying at a relative's house overnight and taking a ferry back home the next day. At first they were shy and reserved, and Doodle had almost no fur because when they rescued him, he was covered in matts which had to be shaved off.

Now they are happy and very nice. We have had them for a little more than a month, but they are already very settled in. Doodle especially is not very sure about strangers, but we expect that to pass eventually. They are great dogs and we couldn't have asked for more!
