Everyone's dogs are SO cute. DesignVigilante, you should definitely join, this swap seems like it's going to be a blast.
Ok, now to shamelessly show off my doggie.
This is Aubie. Her story is actually similar to yours, DesignVigilante. I found her on petfinder.com. She was in a Georgia pound and I was down south visiting Auburn University (thus the name). She was in a high-kill shelter and it was her last day to live. I had to snatch her up. Aubie came with NO records. I've had her for almost 2 months now and since then she's had: fleas, ticks, kennel cough, UTI, ringworm and hookworm. Despite all that, she's still the nicest dog EVER.
