Hey Mom, I'm on your rescue bandwagon. For the past twenty years I've had only rescue dogs and they do turnout wonderfully. I've had as many as five at one time and they were unbelievably compatible with each other and our home never seemed crowded. Currently I have two rescue dogs that I wouldn't trade for anything. Your Chichi is a real trooper to have survived her long and arduous trip from the U.S. to Canada. I don't mean just physical survival but emotionally and personality wise. Wow, that pup is made of good stuff. It's no wonder that she completes your household and your family. CONGRATULATIONS Chichi on being our beautiful (inside and outside) Dog Of The Day. We wish for you a continued bright and happy future.
