The Adventures of Layla and Her Sidekick Kate
Wednesday, 17 November 2010

Hello to everyone at DKC! I’m a few weeks late, but on October 20th Layla and I celebrated our first year together! It’s been a wonderful year for us and we wanted to share some of the excitement with you.

It’s amazing how different things are from the first day I saw “Cher” at the Irving City Shelter and then finally adopted her from you. Today she is the happiest girl in the world, always smiling! She loves her big kitty sister Phoebe. They keep each other company when I’m away and truthfully they rule the household.

We went to visit my family in Florida for Thanksgiving last year and Layla loved the dog beach. At Christmas, we went to see Santa so she could tell him exactly what she wanted in her stocking. During January’s big storm she experienced snow for the first time and couldn’t get enough of it. When the weather finally got warm again I took her to the doggy pool at my work and she tried swimming. Because of her short little legs she needed a life vest for safety, but she tried so hard! And this year for Halloween she went trick-or-treating with her “boyfriend” Rex; he was a cowboy and she was an Indian. Layla and Rex are a perfectly matched pair. They have doggy play dates every week and people always ask if they are from the same litter. They just love each other. Layla really is the perfect companion.

Most days we just spend together running errands around town (she is my faithful co-pilot) and hanging out at home and watching TV. She is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and we are so happy together. We hope you all have had as great a year as we have! Thanks for bringing us together and for creating happy lives for other dogs, cats, and people out there. Keep up the great work!
