Well, to say that these 2 adorable faces rule our house is an

Kasie, our 18 yr. old Chow, is a rescue from the local animal shelter. She was abandoned on a major thoroughfare at the tender age of 3 months.

Sitting in a large cage at the shelter with her tiny nose sticking through the bars, that adorable face just called out to me.

Taylor is another special story. On vacation with my husband in northern NY
State, I stumbled on her a pet store while picking up food for Kasie. She melted my heart right away. On a return trip to town, I 'guided' my husband to the golf shop next door to the pet store. After spending time oogling Taylor-Made golf clubs, I coaxed him next door to the pet shop. Immediately, I made my way to the cage where this adorable little puppy was. I picked her up and proceeded to walk around the store, trying to get Dave to bond with her.

After some convincing on how wonderful an addition she would be to our
family, (and my husband finally giving in and saying 'do whatever you want')
I bought the dog. At the time, she was so small that she could walk under
Kasie (who at the time was around 60 lbs.) We then had to pick a name.
Taylor was promptly named for the golf clubs my husband spent time looking

We got Taylor but it wasn't the 'Taylor-Made' that Dave had hoped for. Seven years later, she now stands nose to nose with me when she's up on her hind legs. At 110 lbs. she is a bed hog and we BOTH love her dearly. (It really didn't take Dave long to bond with her, or Kasie for that matter. His girls are very dear to his heart, as well as mine).
