Rio is our lovely dog. We got him from a family on the country side and he had the sweetest mom named Lily, a Labrador/ Golden Retriever Mix who had just gotten 13 puppies with their neighbors dog, a Collie/ Australian Shepherd Mix. We had actually thought first we would get a female dog and had two really cute ones that they told us were still available. But I still did not feel like it was going to become my dog. Then this dirty and wet puppy crawled out of the pond, bigger than all the other siblings, and I fell in love right in this moment. I had to have him. We picked him up with 8 weeks and it was the scariest and happiest ride home. I had him on my lap and could not believe I finally had my own dog. This was now almost four years ago.
He is now a happy adult dog enjoying his days. He loves cuddles and belly rubs, swimming, playing fetch and socializing with other dogs.
Kiara is our cat. We picked her up with around 14 weeks from this lady with really many cats. The other siblings were fluffy and had long fur. She was kind of the ugly ducking in the bunch. But not for us. She had beautiful blue eyes and a very special fur pattern with many colors from white to beige to dark brown. The cat lady told us that she would have probably stayed here forever if we would not have taken her in.
Today she turns 5 years of age and she is a cat who loves the outdoors and spends half her days outside on adventures. Kiara is kind of a funny cat; she likes to catch mice, but she rarely kills them, she just brings them alive into the house and we end up needing to find and catch the mouse and bring it outside again.
She loved to cuddle with our house bunny Roxy, who unfortunately died a couple of years ago. Nowadays she sleeps and cuddles with our dog.
