Smile I'm new to the forum

Hi everybody. I've been reading posts and finally joined. I have had dogs throughout my adult life ( and cats before that). About a year ago I decided I wanted a dog but didn't know what. That is when I started reading and talking to lots of dog parents. I decided I wanted a small dog. But then I couldn't decide if I wanted a puppy or a teen. The more I read the more confused I became. Did I want to buy a puppy from a breeder or adopt from a shelter. Did I want a male or female? My head was spinning and I was driving my husband crazy. Then a miracle happened ( well, sort of a miracle). A friend of ours was moving from the country into an apartment in town and couldn't bring his dog. He was heart broken and talked to my husband. Short story, we took Carly. She is everything I thought I didn't want. She is an 8 yr old boxer mix. She is also amazing. She doesn't bark or jump or drool. She is gentle, well behaved and smart. She is my shadow and I'm hopelessly in love with her...
