As the proud owner of three rescued babies, I wasn’t necessarily looking to add a fourth (or so I liked to tell Dad …). But, in the course of volunteering for the wonderful APRA, this little baby chose me. She was a scared little thing, and it seemed as though I became her tranqulizer. I couldn’t resist that adorable face, so I became a foster failure and she’s now a part of our family. She has blossomed into a bundle of joy that likes to run around in the yard, bond with her Shih Tzu sister, and just hang out on the couch being a cuddle muffin. She’s still nervous at times, but is mostly sweet and gentle. Keeping with our family tradition, we named her after a beach like we did our other doggies. We like to say that we didn’t give her the gift of life–life gave us the gift of her. ~ Jack, Melissa, Dewey, Tybee, Folly ‘n Bethany K.
