Happy Tails: Chaos' Story

Chaos (formerly Zelda)

"I adopted Zelda; a friend in Texas pulled her from the shelter for me and arranged for boarding. But to be honest she looks like her sister Arlin as in the photo online Zelda looked even smoother coated but maybe that was just the photo? Doesn't matter as I feel this puppy sleeping next to me was meant to be with me.

"I flew to Texas this week and she flew home with me so now is living in Santa Barbara, Calif. Her new name is Chaos (Texas Chaos!)

"She acts like she has been with me forever and is an amazing puppy. Very confident and not at all nervous at the airport; she was interested in everything she saw. Her new brother a three-year-old Silken Windhound named Dazzle and her older sister a homozygous merle deaf 12-year-old aussie (or maybe border collie) named Phoenix are not sure what to make of her and run from her. But she is determined to become best friends with them, and I know she will.

"I can't wait until she is done with her shots and can join us at the leash-free beach. She will have the good life of beaches and dog parks and agility. I am hoping she will become my next good agility partner!"
