“He ran across two avenues with me chasing.

Luckily, he rain down a muse that was a dead end, because that was the only way I could have gotten him back.

He is a squirrel chaser, so I am scared to let him off leash.

Kai is so loving.

When he and I wake up in the morning he rolls over for me to pet his stomach.

I am just as glad to see him, as he is to see me.”

“I just recently retired and having Kai gives me a routine and a schedule.

I still mourn the cat, and realize that Kai is not a substitute.

I used to get maybe 8,000 or 9,000 steps on my Fitbit, but now I get 10,000 by 2 pm.

He runs much faster than I do.

I know this, because he ran away from me twice in Rockaway.”

“I went through Rescue Dogs Rock, while living in Rockaway.

They offered me a Maltese/Chinese Crested mutt with three legs who was one and a half years old.

I took him.

When I saw his photograph, I fell in love with his face instantly.

I applied for him, filled out a long form, had a phone interview and then had a house visit.

I was approved.”

“My late husband and I had a cat and the cat was his beloved cat.

We had agreed when the cat passed away, we would get a dog.

My husband died three years ago and the cat died last summer.

I went online in late June looking for a rescue dog.

I wanted an adult poodle.”
