Tell me about your dog.

I adopted Archie after he was surrendered to my work, needing surgery and a new home. He was only 7 months old at this stage and my previous border collie passed away earlier in the year. I was starting to come around to the idea of another dog, and my other dog Diego was depressed without a friend anymore. So I gave Archie his new and forever home. Archie and Diego are the best of friends and Archie brings me so much love and happiness every day.

Thank you Emily + Archie for taking part in the Dog Days of Summer!
