BTW... Not sure if anyone noticed (because I didn't until after I took the shot and was viewing it on my computer) that the latch was undone. Sometimes we get so caught up in the moment of taking the photo that we miss something significant like this. I like to think that this is a sign that there is hope for freedom for this dog waiting for a loving home. #7655239
