Pete joined our family on Thanksgiving Eve in 2008. Abby had lost her job the day before and was headed to a friend’s condo in downtown Atlanta to try and cheer up. When she arrived in the rain around 8pm, a white puppy was hanging around in the parking lot, approaching each car that pulled in. Barely able to resist the dog’s floppy ears, Abby went ahead upstairs to meet her friends. Four hours later, when Abby was leaving, that same fluffy puppy was sitting by the front door, under the overhang and avoiding the rain. He readily accepted some belly rubs and head scratches and dutifully followed Abby to the car. Sydney and Abby attempted to find the puppy a home for approximately 17 seconds before realizing what everyone else knew: Pete already had a home.
