A few days before Christmas my hyperactive white German Shepard Draco, passed away. He was a great companion and we will miss him dearly. My daughter and I have agreed (or rather I've convinced her) that it is best to wait some time before we adopt a new dog. In the meantime, the cat is having full run of the house and the backyard and loving it. When we are ready to love another dog we will definitely be going to the Monterey County SPCA to adopt.
