After Ten Years

After ten years I am compelled to email you. to refresh your memory, we were looking for joy and happiness after we had lost everything in an f4 tornado in 2004. I discovered Coton de Tulears on Google and became fascinated with the breed. You helped me name her Whirlwind Blessings of Zoe. I believe you shared she was the first Coton that had stayed in Nebraska. Barb, I can't express what a blessing she is to me and our family. Zoe loves everyone and has such a loving personality and gentle spirit. She even morphs her personality to adjust to which person she is playing with. She is nothing but love, kisses and snuggles with my daughters and I, but ramps up and "rough houses" it a bit with my husband and son. She is such a pleaser and so very smart. Since 2008, I have been a virtual employee and work from home. Zoe is my constant companion. I would be so lonely without her. She "works" beside me each and every day and knows my every move. I cannot believe that 10 years have gone by and I am already beginning to fret a bit about what I will do when we loose her. Honestly, she is my fourth child - that is how much I love my girl. Keep doing what you do. It changes lives and brings immense joy beyond measure. Jody Hallam Nebraska
