I think Zoie came to live with us from a very bad home 6 months today. She was very thin. She was so in need of love and attention!!! She just ate me up from the start! I showed her a lot of love from the first minute I met her. When her only other family walked out of here she was glad to stay with me. The first night she didn't want to get in the crate but she did and she cried a lot but I didn't get up for her. The second night she didn't cry so much and the next night she didn't cry at all. She slept in her crate at night until Happy decided it was her crate and now Zoie sleeps in her chair. She never bothers us until it is time to get up then she comes in the bedroom and says hi and if I don't get right up away she gos back to bed until I am ready to get up!!! She is a wonderful girl. In the first picture she was 48 lbs.. Now she is 82 lbs. and so happy!!!! Happy 6 months Zoie!!!!!! Here's to lots and lots and lots more years together!!
