Zoey

(Riverside, CA)

In 2006, while at my daughter's gymnastics class, woman walked into the gym holding a white dog. She announced to the parents that the dog had been left at the police station and needed a home. I immediately jumped and said, "I'll take her!" withiut even a thought. From the moment I put her in my lap, we were inseparable. I can't explain to others the bond that we immediately had, but it was instant.


I had 2 male dogs at home, brothers who we had bought at a pet place. It wasn't a store, not a breeder. They had a bunch of puppies and we got the 2 muts. Zoey immediately took on a mom role (even though she was only 6 mos old and the boys were a year old.).

Well, since bringing Zoey home, we began rescuing more dogs. We have had up to 9 at any given time and have been fosters. We give up a lot to have them in our homes, but it it so rewarding. Zoey has welcomed every dog into our home and has never had a behavioral problem. I call her "The Perfect Dog"! :)

She is now 11. She is the love of my life. She rescued me!

Karla...your story was SO touching to me! I had wanted a Coton for years and then in April of 2007 the most beautiful ball of white fur was placed in my arms. My life would be forever change. We also named her Zoe. (meaning life) Karla, you had me weeping! I, too, call her the love of my life! She was pre-child so I kind of felt guilty saying that after my son came along. ;) I had about 12 nicknames for her and honestly I was nutso over her! :) Our hearts were broken in 2013 when we had to say goodbye. I'm still mourning her and want to move on because dogs fill a void in our hearts that is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing yours and Zoey's story. You're both so lucky!
