my family has always had some type of animal 99.9% of the time it's at least one dog. there was one time my dad got a cat but he didn't survive with the family long as my mom and i were super allergic to him!
i am very happy to say that i am about to become the proud mommy of forrest! he's a Dachshund / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat) and he's precious! i get to pick up forrest martin luther king jr weekend and i can't wait.
