Lucky and Osco both found us, rather than us finding them. Osco, or "Ozzie", is what we believe is a Cocker Spaniel mix that we stumbled upon while shopping for a gift for a neighbor. He was wandering in and out of the neighborhood Jewel-Osco (hence the name) when we arrived. We took him home "until we found the owner" and posted Lost Dog notices everywhere. That was 8 years ago, and he's been a wonderful addition to our family. He is such a well behaved dog, and he is a certified therapy dog. He goes to hospitals and offers the children a fun approach to their physical therapy.

Lucky is a Beagle/Rat Terrier mix that we adopted from a shelter in August of '08. She was 7 months old at the time and had been adopted and returned twice already due to behavior issues. She had the sweetest face and looked so sad in her kennel, we couldn't pass her up. With a little hard work (and patience) she has become one of the best dogs I have ever had. She's sweet, loving, and playful, and she loves to cuddle.

Both of these dogs have been unexpected blessings to our home, and I couldn't imagine life without either one of them.
