13 years ago back in 2007 I went with a friend who was looking for a dog and as I stood off to the side all of these dogs barreled out of the condo, but the last one out slowly walked over to me, sat between my legs, and gave me a big old kiss. I knew we were meant to be at that moment. Since that day we have had so many adventures together, we met her now dad, got married, and now has two little brothers. Everyone that meets her adores her, she is the sweetest dog.
