Rescuing Mr. Wiggles

Sonoma County Humane Society

No, actually, we didn't need another pet.

What weakness overcomes us on those few days -- only a handful over the course of a lifetime -- when we gladly take on a task that will require 10 or 20 years of daily attention, not to mention hundreds or thousands of dollars in veterinary bills and housesitter fees? The humane society had set up shop in Incarnation's courtyard after church, and Jen was busy serving coffee in the hall while Emily fell in love with a little hobo dog who, after we knew him for a day or two, would come to be called Billy.
