...I have her because my neighbor across the street was going to get her "put to sleep" (!), and she (the dog, not the neighbor) walked over to me, put her head on my lap, and looked up at me with these big, brown, totally guileless, utterly friendly eyes, and she communicated the following message to me telepathically:

"Hi! Adopt me!"

I'm a cat person. I was told (by the neighbor) that this dog was housebroken and spayed. Turned out she was not housebroken and was in heat. I had baptism by fire in dog caregiving! She was a year and 3 months and had been kept outside 24/7. She was never trained in any way, shape or form. Everyone I respected on pet-related matters told me to stick her in a crate. All my problems would be solved and I would end up with the perfect dog if I would just stick her in a crate 24/7. Somehow, that idea did NOT seem like a very nice one to me. This poor dog had endured enough. Instead I just loved her and used positive reinforcement and the result is that she is now "pretty much" housebroken, and simultaneously the biggest pain in the butt that ever existed and the most loveable thing on earth. Long live J!
