August 22 is a very important anniversary. On Sunday, August 20, 2000 I found myself walking into the Humane Society on 59th and 2nd in New York and taking the elevator to the 3rd floor - the Adopt Me floor. i walked to the end of the row and this scruffy terrier came to the front of his cage and starting jumping up and down. Typical terrier puppy spirit. I couldn't help smiling and then laughing.
Long story short - I filled out the paperwork, the HS checked my references, and I picked him up on August 22, 2000. I have loved every minute of the 12 years since BJ came to his forever home.
I don't know which one of us was luckier.
