Kate the Mate

Kate the Mate relaxing at the upper helm of “Slow Dance.”

More: We found Kate’s litter on the Brittany Spaniel rescue site, and rescued her from AARF in Winston-Salem, NC. I had planned to rescue her sister, Pippa. When I sat down in the grass to watch Pippa and her siblings playing, Kate ran over and jumped into my lap — twice, kissing my face and snuggling. I could not leave without her. Sweetness and obedience are her “super powers.”
