what is the difference for phoebe in being a permanent sanctuary dog....or becoming my own personal family dog?....
well honestly? not a heck of a lot.
except.....my relationship does change a bit with them because they are now part of my deeply personal family....(it is whole new level of committment and caring when it is actual and irrefutable family)
if i die, my family becomes responsible for any of my personal surviving animals...and that would include phoebe.
who's laughing now?
