I adopted in 2000. We had her for 16 years! Once in your life you truly get the best dog every who is your best friend. That describes Kiki. I wish I had room to put more pictures to show all the fun times we had. 2 years ago I had to let her cross the Rainbow Bridge. Since that time we have adopted 2 more. I would only adopt- they make the most loving dogs ever! Sometimes they may have "special needs" but that makes them even more special!
