We really were smitten with Kokie, so after she died, we looked on line at petfinder.org and found a cute blond female named Lauren at Lil' Waif Puppy Rescue. She had already been adopted, so they suggested Baby Cole who was playful and full of spirit. We liked Baby Cole but he was not female and definitely not blond. We brought him home, renamed him Fred and he sprouted up like a weed. The puppy rescue was right - Fred is a character.
