#200 Adopt a puppy
When we got back from vacation we adopted this little fellow. We got him from the Hawaii Humane Society (http://www.hawaiianhumane.org/).
We actually went there looking for a cat we had dropped off before we left for vacation. I get attached to animals and I was feeding a stray kitten for a few months and unfortunately we couldn't keep the kitten but we didn't want him to starve while we were gone. As hard as it was we brought the little guy to the humane society. The good thing about this shelter is that it's a no-kill shelter (unless the animal is dangerous or is really sick). My husband promised we could adopt the kitten if he was still there when we got back from vacation.
Well long story short the kitten was already adopted (I am happy for the little guy). We made the mistake of looking through the dog crates and we saw this little guy. He was the only dog that didn't bark when other dogs walked by. We took him out of the cage and we HAD to adopt him.
He is a total sweetheart. We took him home last week and we named him "Revis". He is about one year old. He was a stray so the humane society didn't know exactly how old his is. He has been really good. He does like to chew on things he isn't supposed to. Just as I was typing that he came running in the room with one of my socks. In all fairness it's our fault for leaving things around where he can reach them. He likes shoes too. Which is not good for my shoe collection.
So far so good! And I have to add a disclaimer... If you are going to add a new pet to your family please look at your local shelter first, you never know you could find a gem like Revis.
