KT1I post the Happy Tales stories on the APRA website and realized recently that I never post my own tales so here goes!!!

I adopted K.T. in February; she was rescued from Animal Control, was pretty skinny and had obviously recently given birth to puppies.  I had been looking for another large dog ever since two of my dogs, Charlee & Senji, has passed on 3-4 years ago.  When I met K.T., I knew she was the one and I was right; having her around has helped to heal my heart.

K.T. is a 3-year old goofball and, at the same time, one of the gentlest dogs I have ever known.  She knows how to maneuver around my small dogs and my cats without messing up a hair and is nicely protective of her new “home” when strangers approach the door.  I know that she wouldn’t hurt a fly but she certainly puts on a good show!!!  In the middle of the night, when I am sound asleep with 2  small dogs and a cat on my bed, she quietly climbs up without disturbing anyone, lays down in any remaining spot she can find and places her head somewhere on my body before dozing off to sleep herself.  She loves being near her siblings and me and we are so glad to have her in our “pack”. ~ Gigi

    Thank you for posting this wonderful and heartwarming Happy Tale. K. T. is a beautiful girl and her kind eyes reveal a gentle soul. She reminds me of Charlee – judging from Charlee’s picture on the Rainbow Bridge. K. T. could have not asked for a better forever home and a more loving mom, and I can imagine how happy you are to have this sweet and gentle pup in your life.
