Yukon and Lilly - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Must Love Dogs NW, Vancouver, WA.


In total, we have adopted three dogs from Must Love Dogs NW. Our first, Buddy, was a Golden. He passed away. Yukon, our 9-year-old Lab/Border Collie mix, is still with us and is the dog I call Gandhi. He is my heart. He is sweet, devoted and a joy in all ways. He is looking at knee surgery soon, poor guy, but will handle it as he handled everything -- with grace, ease and no complaints, just lots of love to share. We also adopted Lilly -- a Mastiff/German Shepherd mix. We love her to bits. She is affectionate, a little mischievous and very goofy -- but don't take that to mean she isn't whip smart, because she is. They add joy to our home and our lives. We couldn't imagine a dog-free home and are thrilled with the two we have. Petfinder and the affiliated organizations finding homes for these guys is a great service. I hope, soon, it will be the norm to adopt. We are so lucky to have two of the best dogs -- ever.
