I love my dog Kathy. Cinderblock of love, professional sitter, sleeper; carrot eater. She's my favorite person ever. I got Kathy from a Humane Society shelter in Green Cove Springs, Florida. Her name had been Mable and at 8 months her owner turned her in for unknown reasons. I'm glad I was there that day. I had looked on-line and seen the shelter had a number of Jack Russels, and that was what I had come for. But l'il Mable with her old soul and sweet look caught me. And when I walked her out of the kennel, she sat and lifted her arms to me. That was it. I thought I wanted a perky terrier when really-- I completely adore this quiet hound.
