Growing up I had a dog and a few cats. Kyo was my first. My brother Scott bought her for me and she was my faithful dog until I was married and had a child of my own. I cried the day my mom told me she died. I loved her so much that during my senior year in high school I gave a year's tuition so that she could have a life saving surgery. I worked extra jobs to make up for it.
We had cats, but true to their nature, they were in and out and did their own thing. One even gave birth to a litter of kittens in my closest.
Today we have dogs in our house. We prefer Yorkies.
No they aren't related except they have been adopted by our family.
We love them and they were my constant companion through cancer! They are loyal, fun, frisky and part of our family.
