    She's Actually a Lab Mix...

    ... and we got her from a shelter 5 months ago.  She's 5 years old and full of energy!  We didn't plan on getting an "older" dog, but I sure am glad we did.  With her energy level, I don't think I could've handled a lab pup.  She is really smart...

    I got Tika in the autumn of my fifth grade year.

    After 7 years, she has not changed at all, and my family and I love her unconditionally. Tika, we love you forever and ever and ever!

    She is my baby. I love her so much, kind of like a sister it's pathedic. Her name is Kenya. Kenya is 11 months old, almost a year! So she's still crazy. I honestly don't understand how her stomach could take half the stuff she tries to eat. Have you ever seen Marley and me? Yeah...
