She's won Dakota and I over, but we haven't gone on a long car ride with them yet, or considered the extra cost for food and vet bills. On the other hand, having a watchdog has it's advantages! Dakota is all love, unlike 'PG', who already barks when someone's at the door! Not only that, but she keeps Dakota occupied all day long and he eats his boring dry dog food without fuss! no more flavoring and coaxing with table scraps! With all that in mind, and with heavy heart in hand we will still have to drive her to the Humane Society to make the fateful decision.
