Welcome to the DailyPuppy!!!
I hope you find the the people, information given, and adorable puppies On this site are very beneficial; as I do. However, I fit in the same boat with you, my avatar is a pic of my boy yoshi as a puppy, but he is actually 1 year old at the moment. So, it's completely fine.
Also, I find it very heart warming to find someone with the same wish of housing and caring for all the unfortunate dogs in the world. I agree the land and money deficiency is a bummer.
Cookie is so Adorable and I bet she is SUPER FLUFFY!!!
Although, I love the fluff, the shedding can be hectic But, I'm pretty sure you have no problems with Cookie and I would LOVE to see more pics of both Cookie and Boobers. Also, Oregon is a Lovely place and I have visited Oregon many times. Lets say it's my gateway to Canada and to Victoria.
Again, welcome to the Dailypuppy from Bandit & Yoshi in California! NOTE: It feels great to finally know someone that lives in the westcoast .
