Our adoption journey was filled with triumphs, challenges and heartbreak … and ultimately led us to Charlie. It’s been three months since we’ve adopted this spunky border collie mix, and we’ve enjoyed sharing his (mis)adventures with you.
Now that we have Charlie, it’s easy to forget the road we traversed to get him. First we fell in love with Ranger, then he fell through our fingers. Then the meet-and-greet was bungled with Demi, a cute-but-troubled border collie mix. We found Charlie on a website, and even though he was fostered in Kentucky, we took a chance on the pup who stole our hearts. The rest is history.
Now we want to hear your story, whether it was through adoption, an accidental meeting or another way of finding each other. How did you fall in love? Tell us how your pet came into your life in 500 words or less.

Ohhh you gotta love the mug.
I can’t participate because I don’t have an adoption story.
But I’d like to read the entries people submit.
Is this Doggy? Hi! Maybe your mom could share your story!
Doggy is motherless :(, I’m a guy.
Doggy was a gift so, I have no adoption story, I do have a turtle adoption story, does that count?
Oh my. That’s what I get for typing while driving, and making a huge assumption. Really this contest is all about love connections. So if you would like to share the story of how you and Doggy found each other, that would be awesome. And yes, turtles, count too. We’re all caregivers, sometimes my dogs are better caregivers of me! 😉
P.S. You bring up a good point, that pets find us in all sorts of ways. So I have rewritten the main contest post to reflect that. Thanks for the reminder!
Or you could tell your own! Woof!
Would it be alright if Nibbles wrote about coming to Mummy from a pet shop that long six years ago? It’s not adoption but it was still special because it brought about Mummy’s love of guinea pigs.
Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil
I would love your story! This is all about love connections, whether it’s through adoption, accidentally finding each other, or somewhere in between. 🙂
Just sent Nibbles’s story! Hope it is ok and what you are looking for.
