“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.”
