Back in July of 2011, I adopted a senior pet, a black poodle named Inky. He was the light of my pet-owning life for two and a half wonderful years until I lost him on November 1st, 2013, to a stroke. Since then, I have been looking for another sweet poodle to come into my life, and today, she did. This is Cassidy. She’s 14 weeks old and her owners could no longer care for her. I adopted her this afternoon and she’s already settling in with my other older bichon frise mix and with my loving kids. Welcome to family, Cassidy!
