I went to a pet adoption place with a friend to find her a pet & Paris and I found each other. I saw her backed up in a corner, went in and talked to her. She is a registered cocker and had been used as a puppy mill. She had lost 60% of her coat from stress, had fleas and heart worms, malnourished and dehydrated. Her cocker registration had her name as Paris which I did not find out until after I had already decided to adopt her and just to show how this was meant to be: I collect Eiffel Towers. She is such a wonderful friend and companion. She loves to lay in my arms like a baby and have her belly rubbed and every morning she rolls over for a belly rub before we get up and she loves to give doggie kisses. She now has a clean bill of health & has so much love to give and has brought me many hours of joy over the past 3 years and we look forward to many more years together!
