Last month, I received an email from A Forever Home (the rescue in Virginia where I adopted Dakota when she was 8 weeks old) saying their Christmas card was returned and they needed an updated address for me. I replied, gushing about how much I adore Dakota and attached a picture (that I had previously posted on this blog). Today, while perusing their website, I noticed that Dakota's pic and my note are featured in their Letters from Home section. Go, D!
