Puppy adoption site

While I was waiting to be accepted for membership last week I clicked on a great site that allowed you to view puppies in the area. You could click on the ones you might be interested in and it would put them at the bottom of the page to view later, or add more to the list. Is anyone familiar with this site? I can't find it again and even looked through my history. Thanks for any info.

Lessons We can Learn from Our Pet Dog

We humans assume that we hold the key to all knowledge to make our lives much simpler and happier, searching for all the answers to our problems in material stuff. What we forget is that there are things beyond the material layer where the real happiness and real contentment lies. Living in the artificial layer for too long has made us forgetful of the right spirit to live. But you can find that essence of life right in your home, in the lifestyle of your adorable pet dog. Dogs have even…
