What do you love about your mutt?
After I divorced, after my mother died, after I moved to a city where I really knew no one, I knew I had to have a dog again for the first time in about 35 years. I've loved big dogs, but when I saw Nori in a picture from the rescue, I knew she was for me. I don't know her back story, but this little long haired dachshund spaniel mix has loved me through a tough time. She is so sweet and precious but she's smart and she even makes a pretty respectable hiking companion too. Her excitement for road trips and outdoor adventure is contagious. I'm grateful for her every single day.
