We have three dogs, Graham, Molly & Sofie, and I talk about them almost as much as - if not more than - I do about running. Graham came home in December of 2009, at the end of a really tough year, and was part of the many ways my life changed for the better around that time. I don't think I've ever loved anyone or anything the way I love Graham.
We discovered a year later that Molly's sister Sofie had been given up for adoption, and we had no choice but to bring her home. A lot of people think we're crazy, and our dogs definitely are, but she made our family complete.
