About 10 years ago, my family and I stopped by our local Humane Society in Appleton, Wisc., to donate some food and toys. We lost our beloved dog recently and we were going to take a “dog break.” Famous last words, right? The kids wanted to take a quick look at the dogs that were there, so we were going down the line and there he was, a skinny chocolate lab with such sad eyes. The kids spotted him and I looked at my husband and I said, “Oh no, here we go.” As we looked through the window, he tilted his head sideways and he “spoke” to all of us. So we ended up adopting Bo that day.
