Well, here's how I know I'm ready for a new pack member. I learned today that Tobias has found a home, just not with us. I got a little choked up. So I know I'm ready for a new dog.
Snowflake found a home, and so did Skunk. Apparently we have good taste in dogs, as everybody wants the ones we want!
We'll keep looking and see if we can't find our new puppy, or have it find us.
