As some od you already know, my work has taken me to the local animal shelter every afternoon. Today, we saw the prettiest black and tan chihuahua mix. Her little face was gorgeous, and her fur was in good shape but her nails were very long and she was VERY scared. the shelter holds dogs who look like they have a home (she has a collar) for 21 days. If she goes up for adoption, it will be really hard for me to leave without her.
