My Granddaughter came too visit us in calif. one year & I agreed to get her a turtle from the pet store, well we came home with a pound puppy instead. She named him Copper. She went home in 2 weeks & we were stuck with this puppy. 14 years later I had too put him down with failing kidneys. OMG, for 3 years now I have been grieving over that dog. He was part of the family. I swore I would never get another dog.
Well, we now have 2 Pugs that we rescued from bad situations. Their names are Maggie & Debbie, they make life a lot more interesting. They seem too enjoy making us laugh by doing stupid things. They feed off our laughter. I know one day what is coming, but I wouldn't trade those years for anything. There's never a dull or lonely moment with my girls around.
When I come back in my next life, I'm going too open a pet store! That's where all the money is. (joke)
