Before Katniss, my husband and I were just two people; Katniss made us a family.
Katniss came into rescue after some sad circumstances. She was really skinny, very quiet, and didn't know how to be a dog. When we took her home, she didn't know how to play with toys, what to do with a bone, and even went on a hunger strike! But, Katniss soon learned how to chase the birds, make friends at the pet store, destroy the squeakers in balls, and enjoy her life! She's spoiled rotten and we wouldn't have it any other way.
