We were on a two week vacation in Ireland and stayed at a timeshare in a town called Bearna, just outside of Galway. This adorable Jack Russell mix puppy was hanging around outside the house where we were staying. The neighbor said the dog had been hanging around all week. We fed him, gave him a bath and took him to the vet to see if he was chipped. He wasn't. We put ads in the local paper and on the radio, but no one claimed him. At the end of our trip, we decided to take our new best friend home to the US. He's been with us ever since, about 10 years! We named him "Bearna" after the town where we found him.
