As we were driving onto the Yard, through officer’s quarters, I saw a woman walking her dog, a border collie, and I commented to her what a nice dog it was, and she said do you want him. I asked why and she and her husband were looking to downsize the amount of dogs they have. He is the German Professor at USNA. We got to talking and we made arrangement for us to adopt the dog. Call it fate, but it looks as though our first USNA Family member will be a dog. He was born there.
