Being in this hobby, we all know the joy of finding something wonderful when you were least expecting it. I had a fair number of serendipitous pickups in 2013. But, this is my favorite:
You may recall someone dumped a dog out in the country near my home in early October and we took her in a couple weeks later and named her Abby. She can be seen above playing with Buddy, the Great Pyrenees mix, who was, coincidentally, my favorite surprise pickup of 2011. She is a great dog, although she is still a puppy and can get in a bit of trouble at times.
