Prior to August 2014, I had been raving about having a dog -- I was very interested in the pitties but not until I moved to my current residence was I allowed to have a dog. Right away I decided I should jump on the opportunity to get one to call my own. I headed toward the SF SPCA first to have a look around, leaving my wallet at home so I wouldn't jump on the first puppy eyes I saw.

After repeated requests and begging our landlord, our daughter wrote a heartfelt note to the landlord how a dog would help her heal the pain of past physical abuse.

We took him home and named him Angel. Our hearts...
