i love my sweet Cotton. today she is 6 years old! the picture above is from the night we picked her out. she had just eaten her dinner and had quite a full belly.
Cotton is our alpha female. this means she doesn't really listen to me either unless she knows for certain jay is not anywhere around. she is a faithful and loving dog who follows me around the house most days. she is very smart- often too smart for her own good. she's stubborn and tends to have storm anxiety. she hates thunderstorms (and fireworks, guns, etc) and we bought a thundershirt and it works amazingly for her. she doesn't mind the vacuum or the hairdryer, though. she and barley are opposites on those loud noises.
