You know what... there is something in the demeanor of a dog when brought home directly from the shelter.

They have this look that they give you.
I'd like to imagine that it is a look of thanks.

That just hours ago they were in a tiny square cement cage with no air or light. And now they are being pet and loved on, with a few kind words. A bath, some good treats, and a place to run.
They have a look of gratitude on their faces that melts your heart. Literally melts it, and it leaks out of your eyes.

Just now, the way that Charlie is looking at me, laying his head on my lap while I pet his ears.... I wish that I could adequately describe the emotions that elicits.
