This is a picture I took a couple months ago of a dog named Dallas. The back-story here is that I work at the Monmouth County SPCA. Dallas was one of the dogs we had available and ended up becoming my favorite. I had a huge soft spot for him and his huge ears. At the end of every day I would visit him to hang out before we closed down for the night. I love all animals but I didn't think I'd become so attached to one at the shelter. One weekend when I was home I found out that Dallas had been adopted. It was such a bittersweet moment because although I'd miss him, it felt great to know that he had a family that could give him affection all the time. I love this picture in particular because he looks so happy and like a goofball. This was his true nature even though some people were wary of him because he is part pit bull. I miss Dallas a lot but seeing this picture on my phone always makes me smile.
