I always miss my animals when I travel. I seem to find an excuse to pet every single dog that passes by just to get my "furry friend fix". A trip to Saint-Martin some years back was no exception. It was very easy to find dogs to pet on Orient Beach back then as they had quite a big population of dogs that were homeless and who lived off of the kindness of tourists and locals alike. I had a few "regulars" that hung out with me at my beach chair and this suited all of us just fine. Then I met someone from the local animal rescue league and my whole life changed. She knew of a dog that wasn't doing well living as a beach vagabond and she was worried. I met this scared little dog and we fell in love with each other immediately. My husband started panicking as soon as I invited her to stay with us in our vacation home. Each day it became more and more clear that our family was going to increase by one. My husband agreed thinking that there was no way we were going to be able to swing getting all of the paperwork and her shots taken care of in time for our flight back home the following week. Well anyone who knows me knows that I don't take no for an answer when it involves my fur babies. I researched and begged to get all of the pieces of this puzzle put together in time for our flight back to Michigan. Yep, I did it!  We've been happily living together since then... and by the way, after only a few weeks I figured out that she super smart - I just needed to learn more French!
