It started out a little over 2 years ago when my family decided to get our first dog. Well, technically our second. We used to have a dog when I was much younger (around 3 years of age?) but of course I don’t remember anything from back then.
Me as a child and our family's old dog, Joy. He was a smart little mutt, according to my parents! Sorry for the poor quality, the original picture was stuck in a frame so I had to take a picture of the picture!So initially we found a wonderful, sweet little Chow mix named Winnie through Petfinder, but she ended up finding a better forever home more suited for her.
Things were starting to look dismal (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating) for us when on a Friday morning my mom decided to go on Radio Korea ’s website. She went to the pet section, where the Korean community (mostly from Southern California, I think?) posts random pet-related topics, including pets needing homes.
Lo and behold, that’s how we found Winnie, who was then named Coco. She was around 4.5 months old back then and living in Irvine with a young couple. Unfortunately, circumstances didn’t allow them to be taking care of a dog at the time, especially a young puppy.
A few days after we got her. Her unbearable cuteness has already allowed her to claim the couch! LOLA Corgi had been on my list of “possible/ideal breeds”, so we gave them a call and claimed her, so to speak (apparently many others were interested in her). My mom and I drove to Irvine the next day and took her home with us, along with all her things (treats, toys, etc). During the entire car ride I tried to think of a better name (I certainly didn’t like Coco!) but could only think of Winnie, the name of the adopted dog that we had originally been interested in. So in the end she became Winnie!
We'll tag the following blog pups, but feel free to share even if you weren't tagged :)
