We were Lola's 3rd home in a month! Her previous owners thought she was too barky and too bossy. I saw her photo (my avatar) and said to my husband, 'Let's go get her. I will love her.' We got her on New Year's Day, 2012. She walked over to me. I hugged her and she licked my face. I told her she was going to live with us forever. She settled in immediately. She *knew*.
