Arrival Story:
I was 12 when my family got Skittles! My mother, sister and I drove three states over to pick her up from her breeder's house after six months of waiting, and we were very excited. She threw up seven times on the drive home, but who could blame her?

Skittles is a great family dog. I had to leave her with my parents when I left for school, but I get down every weekend for a visit, and she's always happy to see me, even when the visits involve bringing her successor- my dal mix Chloe- along with me. These days Skittles loves laying around the house, going for long, meandering strolls through the woods, eating, and the occasional hiking trip.
