Angel Has Dogs


A while ago, we were burgled while we slept... long story short- we got sloppy with time and we didn't lock up properly.
We've upped our diligence and we lock up properly now and all that, but cats get freaked out when crooks come in the house! We then decided to adopt a couple of dogs so that if someone came in the yard we'd hear about it, if they came in at all.
A few shelters were contacted, and we eventually went to Wetnose to meet some pooches.
The pre-requisites for us as a family were meduim sized dogs, two dogs so as to keep each other company, and not puppies. That was about it. Wetnose had several pairs we could meet and interact with, but one pair in particular caught our attention.
They were named Greta and Gretel, and had been left behind to be rescued when their previous owners had moved house! I don't understand how people can do that, but anyway. We started making arrangements to adopt the two dogs, which included buying an igloo kennel, food, bowls, collars, leashes, blankets and treats.
They came to live with us 2 weeks after we met them and were renamed Thelma and Louise!
