PatPet's Story or Bio. Please provide some background information : name, age, where your pet came from, personality, any unique characteristics, etc.
Sunshine (Sunny) is almost 2 years old, 20 pounds, and we are guessing he's Pomeranian-American Eskimo mix. He's been a well-loved member of our family for a year now.
After working at and adopting from shelters much of my life, our dog population was down to a very sad just-one (from a high of 5). We wanted a Pom, after 2 prior Poms, (first one from Marin Humane Society when I worked there - Dusty!) and couldn't find any at shelters. Saw Sunny looking for a new home on Craig's list (Mennonite family wanted to breed, changed their mind), and contacted them... but they had already given him to someone. Lo and behold, 2 days later they decided they didn't want him, and he was ours.
I was pretty sad at the time, having lost two of our dogs in the spring of 2018 to old age, leaving us with just our 4-year-old Kelpie, Kai. Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows - Sunny's happy, irrepressible spirit was just what I needed - he puts a smile on my face every day. He is, indeed, the Sunshine of my life.
