Yeah, Isis & Otie! Thank you to Jen & Rob for submitting this photo on behalf of the rescue!
Just an aside: Isis (aka Iris) was a severely undersocialized and fearful dog when we first got her a few years ago--my very first severely fearful foster. Her journey in life has truly been an amazing one. It was in large part because of Isis (plus another fearful dog we fostered at the same time, Dori) that I became drawn to dogs with some kind of special need. I will always view her as a particularly special shining star. If you'd like to read her story, please visit http://sillypugs.com/dogs/Iris/Iris.html. Jen & Rob have given her the perfect home and in doing so, have given me one of the best gifts ever.
