The adopters of Evening, a.k.a. “Evie,” write to us: We still had pain in our hearts from losing our beloved dogs Bennie (12 years) and Sage (8 years). Our 6-year-old daughter, Wren, had been asking us for some time when she would be old enough to get a puppy. Petfinder showed gorgeous heeler-mix puppies in our area! Bing! Then I realized they were in LOGAN, UTAH! Oh geez, that was way too far away from our home in Oregon. The next day I showed Erik the photo of a speckled white pup. I slept on it and the next day I called Four Paws to ask about the puppy. Suddenly it did not seem like an insurmountable task to get to Utah. I told her I was going to try and figure out a way to make it work. When we arrived, the foster mom opened the door and out spilled dogs and cats and JOY. The little white “Puppy #3” was right at the front, and as I crouched down, she climbed up on my neck and gave me puppy kisses. She was ours, from the moment I saw her photo.”
