Nick and I recently decided that it was time for us to add to our family...don't get excited, we're not talking children. From way before we were married, we decided that we wanted a dog. I love dogs and it didn't take much to convince me that the Elgin household needed one. Growing up, my sisters and I always wanted a dog. Our Dad bought us a beagle, and we didn't like him much and neither did the neighbors. He wasn't the loveable family pet that we wanted. Buster stole things from the neighbors, avoided contact and lived to escape the yard. One day we came home and Buster was gone. We never found out what happened to him. But after that we immediately started hounding our Dad for another dog. And being the fabulous Dad that spoils his children that he is, he broke down and bought us a Golden Retriever, Millie.
