It was 6 years ago today that Shannon found a little dog and, in turn, we set out to find her owner.

She was only supposed to stay with us until 1) we found her owner or 2) we found a good home for her.  Guess which one happened?

#2. But, to be more specific, she found a good home for herself.

No tags, no chip. Vet gave her a clean bill of health so that we could at least let her hang out with out other dogs. We cleaned her up, and did NOT name her, because we didn't want to get attached; we just called her "Lil' Bit", because she was smaller than our other dogs.

Fast forward to today, 6 years later: she rules the sofa, drinks from the toilet, protects us from the mailman, gets under the covers when bad weather is approaching, and sleeps curled up next to me every night.

Oh, and she still doesn't have a name, we just call her "Lil' Bit" because, you know, if we ever find her owner...
