This is Sox, our dog, when she was just a wee pup. Back in July of 2006, my eldest son's girlfriend asked if she could give him a puppy for his up and coming birthday. Our family had been discussing the possibility of getting a dog, and so I told her maybe. My son knew about this, as he used to go to the dog shelter with his girlfriend (Anna). Anna's aunt had a no kill shelter, and one of the dogs brought in had just had puppies, and my son, Miles, fell in love with one of them. After investigating the mixture of the puppy (Beagle, Basset, Spaniel, Australian Shepherd), we told them that they could bring it over for the weekend and we would make a decision. The second they came in with this cute little puppy, everyone fell in love, there was NO turning back, and she has been a part of our family ever since.
