My wife and I have been searching for the right dog to add to our family.  We already have a cat (Princess) and a very active seven-year-old Macy Lynn, so we needed one that would fit perfectly in the family dynmaic.  My friend and midday personality Cindy Wear (the biggest and supportive animal lover in the STC metro) happened to come acorss Francine and knew she was the one we'd been looking for.

Francine aka "Franny" was a stray that ended up at the Tri-County Humane Society in St. Cloud.  Tracy and I have always adopted our pets in the past, so this made perfect sense to do with Franny.  The team at Tri-County went to great lengths to make sure she was a good fit for us and couldn't have been a better resource in helping us make an informed decision.  They absolutely love those animals and want to make sure they find the "right" forever home.  It's not even been 24 hours, but as you can see, she fits right in with the family and already captured our hearts.

The Tri-County Humane Society has their 25th Annual "Woofstock" coming up on September 7th at Wilson Park in St. Cloud.  I attended last year and can't wait to bring Franny with me this year.  For more details and sponsorship opportunities visit

Thanks to Nancy and the team at All 4 Paws Pet Grooming in Waite Park for the special love and attention. They couldn't have been sweeter or more caring.
