“I like to say “dogs are my favorite people” and people who love dogs understand what I mean. They love you unconditionally and every day they wake up excited because TODAY is going to be great. If you want to make your family more fun, there are so many amazing animals out there just waiting to love you. And I promise they will become your favorite people too. Adopt a “favorite person” from your local animal shelter on Remember Me Thursday® or any day!”
