And the photo you've all been waiting for - Jan's internet debut.
And our final photo, after the ceremony ended the veterans assembled for a group photograph. We applaud every one of them for their dedication and service.
UPDATE ON KITTENS: Josh, the Petsense manager, left us a comment today regarding the kittens with the respiratory illness that are up for adoption. "The kitties have been taken to the vet for evaluation. We should have them back soon." We were really worried the shelter would just take them back and .... we don't want to finish the sentence. If you missed the kittens, you can see them here.
