On Memorial Day weekend, Bill and Mary Lou Johnson’s daughter and son-in-law fell in love — with a dog. Andrew and Randi Mackintosh went to Shop and Share at Lilly Pulitzer, an event benefiting the Big Dog Ranch Rescue, in Wellington. They played with a purebred Weimaraner, named Charlie, and decided to adopt him. He is adapting well to his new life. The Johnsons’ other daughter, Erica, adopted a shar-pei mix the year before. Both grand-dogs visit Longboat Key regularly.
