In 2011 I adopted the best dog in the whole world from the Danville Boyle County Humane Society. She weighs 20 pounds and is a white dog with brown ears and brown spots all over her body. My granddaughter appropriately named her Freckles. Freckles was estimated to be ten to eleven months old when I brought her home. I had her DNA tested and she is a mix of five different dog breeds. A true Mutt - the best of all breeds.
For two years my doctor had been urging me to get a dog and get out and walk. After I brought Freckles home we began walking, three to four miles a day. As a result of walking her I have made many new human and dog friends in my neighborhood. As a bonus I also lost 30 pounds.
She is my constant companion. Freckles follows my every move, loves to go for rides in the car, play and dog nap at my side. If I stay up too late she stares at me until I make a move toward the bedroom.
Freckles has a nine year old torbie "sister cat" named Angel that was also adopted from DBCHS. They love to play together and run around the house.
If you are in need of a companion cat or dog stop by Danville Boyle County Humane Society and pick out a new best friend.
