Last April, I made a visit to our local shelter in Indio, CA to make a donation. I never walk outside to view the dogs. On this particular day, something made me go out. I walked the entire area and came to the very last kennel and there she was. The most precious little terrier mix justing sitting there, not barking, not jumping, just gazing at me. They told me she was only 9 weeks old and today was her first available day to be adopted. She had even been on the morning news that day in the adoption segment, so she was a celebrity!
I had no intentions of getting a dog, especially not a pupppy - I was only looking I told myself. I asked the kennel attendant if I could hold her and that was it. She snuggled my neck, licked my chin and looked at me with an all knowing expression that just said 'can we get this over with and go home now?' I named her Lola, because what Lola wants, Lola gets. It's been two years since that day and I am so thankful I took that walk.
