Meet Spike! I love this dog! He is so fun, hyper, loving and so ugly he is cute. We spend a lot of time together mostly on the couch. He is a wonderful companion. I am sure I will depend on him for company when Rachel goes to college (gasp! in about a month). We adopted Spike from The Ark (an animal shelter). I totally believe in getting your pets from the Humane Society or other organizations. He is the best dog - truly woman's best friend! Oh, and don't look at the mess on the table behind him. HEY, I said don't look!
