As someone struggling with primary infertility, I need an outlet for the "nurturing" instincts that have grown so strong over the past few years. And furbabies are a great way to nurture and love something in a way that *slightly* fills the hole in my heart that I hope someday to fill with a child of my own.
We adopted Sienna from the Humane Society 5 years ago. She is an 11 year old Chihuahua mix and she's my soul-dog. If there is such a thing as a soul-mate or a soul-sister, then this little dog is definitely my soul-dog. I don't know where I'd be without her. She has been my companion throughout my infertility journey, and she's helped me get through some of the really hard days.

When we first found him, he only weighed 6 lbs! He should weigh around 9-10. His fur was covered in mats and ticks, and he obviously needed medical attention. I'm not sure exactly how long he had been missing for, since the owners told me it was just 3 days. The vet disagreed and said he had been missing for at least a few weeks. He was apparently not being cared for or was neglected. We have given him the care and love he needs and even gave him a haircut!
