I love German Shepherds so much. That’s actually how I found Buster — Gawker posted a viral video of a Shepherd being awesome, and I searched the breed on Pet Finder. I wasn’t seriously looking for a dog to adopt since my apartment had a 25-lb. weight limit for pets, but Buster had been classified as a Shepherd mix, so he came up. He was about 24 hours from being put down (I got a discount on his adoption fee because of that, which still breaks my heart), so I am forever grateful to Gawker for its timing.

And now I’m all teary, damn it. I love my puppy!
