I appreciate the clarification. I, too, had some trouble following the timeline (though, the facts of the story were pretty horrifying no matter in which order they occurred)!
I am so glad your girl is thriving now. How scared you must have been!
Oh. My. God.
You were dating the Frankensteins. I am impressed with your fortitude and restraint. I think first glance of the first dog would have coincided with my last time stepping foot in that house.

Kindness is boundless.
