Even though I was adamant I wasn't going to get a dog, I continued to follow the RSPCA page and the Pet Classifieds on FB. Everytime a puppy picture was shared my heartstrings got a little tug but I knew the kind of dog that I didn't want. I'm not a fan of small dogs and I didn't want a working breed again. The dog had to be able to get along with children and most importantly, my cat. And then they posted a photo of a bandog for adoption. I fooled myself into thinking that I would just go and meet her and be totally cool and not fall in love straight away.
A week later, on Christmas Eve, we finally adopted our Maisie.
