My husband and I were preparing to purchase our home and the first thing we wanted was a dog to share it with us. My best friend and I went to our local animal shelter on our lunch hour "just to look." Up front in the glass window was the cutest thing I had ever seen, a 3-month old lab/shepard mix. He immediately stole our hearts. The shelther workers told us he had a unique story. He had been found that morning by a mounted police officer downtown. The officer did not want anything to happen to him, so he carried him on the horse with him all morning until the shelter opened and he could drop him off where he would be safe. My husband and I adopted him 3-days later and named him Token, as he is our "Token" child.
