Tell us the story of how you adopted your dog?

I had just turned 40, was single and did not have any kids. It was love at first sight when I spotted Devo at the SPCA. A few months after adopting Devo, we started hiking daily in the local hills. That's where I met my future husband. He and his dog Brownie hiked daily as well and we would make small talk as we passed one other. A couple months later we met at the top of the hill and hiked together for the first time. We were married a little over a year later.
