Elliott, thanks for the vote of confidence. I appreciate it. There are lots of homeless dogs who need good homes.

Yay...! I know how much you have been looking forward to that, Steve... you will make such a great dog dad... :)

Thanks, Elliott. I am setting things up in my life now so that I can adopt a dog, and hopefully soon.

I live just a few blocks from the dog beach. I never tire of watching the dogs playing on the sand and in the water. They seem to be having a lot of fun. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement.
