Arrival Story:
We first got Zoe in 2001, 3 years after we lost my parents first dog, Millie. Adopted from Bristol RI, she was the perfect combination mix breed: She has all the smarts of a Border Collie, and all the love for swimming and fetching that comes with the Labrador territory. You could really call her my first dog; while Millie had around for most of my life at that point, I wasn't a part of adopting or training her. My parents let me pitch in deciding what dog to adopt, and my choice was Zoe. When I first got her, I wanted to name her Nebraska (because that was where she was flown in from as part of a program to get puppies from overcrowded areas to other places where they are in high demand)! Fortunately, my dad came up with a different name and it stuck.

Bio:
She's now 11 years old and getting up there in years, but she still has a lot of spunk, which she demonstrates whenever the mailman comes around. And as ever, her favorite thing in the world is swimming at the beach.
