Why Harriet is so special:

I adopted Harriet when she was five, and she is one of the sweetest and most loving dogs that I have ever known. Nothing makes her happier than meeting new people and new dogs, and she never seems to be far from my side. I frequently bring her to work with me, and she has charmed everyone in the building. People there may not know my name, but they all know Harriet. She is a part of my family, and I can't imagine my life now without her in it.

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

I like to think that she would say that I make her feel loved, that I keep her safe and happy, and that my tummy-rubbing skills are unrivaled by anyone.
