One little known fact about Marge's history is that at the time I adopted her, three other people were interested in her.
I worked, at the time, at the kennel where she was sheltered, so therefore had the privilege of being able to bypass all of those other people as I decided whether or not she was a good fit for me.
I wonder from time to time, though, about those other three people who wanted the "female black Lab." Her fear issues were really not visible in the shelter, so who knows what would have happened if any of them took her home.
Let's just say that I'm happy things turned out the way they did!
This was Marge's intake photo, taken a couple of days after she arrived in New York after her journey from Georgia in June of 2008. That's me holding her leash - a leash I still own to this day!
