I did it!
I got a new pooch. Meet Macy. She's a 2 year old female beagle. The couple that had her is moving and can't take her along.
She's fitting into the house well so far. She loves kids, other dogs, walks, attention, head rubs, and lots of other things. She's been going to work with me and doing some sales calls. I figured if I couldn't warm my customers up, she might.
