If Kiki could talk, she would say this:
“Hi, I love you. I love everyone. Until a week ago, I was living with my momma and my brother, Shadow. Suddenly, they both left me, and now I’m sitting in our house with some roommates who put me outside a lot.
“We all used to go to the dog beach together all the time, and Shadow (my brother) and I would walk together on the same leash, we loved each other so much.
“I enjoy sleeping under the dining room table on my dog bed, but I also am really happy sitting outside. But I’m happiest wherever there is a person around. If there are no people, I’m happy to sit with a dog buddy. I don’t even chew shit up or crap on the floor when people leave me alone because I’m a good girl.
“I know I’ve let myself go in the last few years; my momma overfed me so now sometimes when I’m at the beach, the other dogs mistake me for an elephant seal. Then I start chasing the ball with them and they realize I’m one of them and we all laugh.
“I am kind of confused as to where everyone went, but I love the new lady who’s been coming over to walk me everyday that I like to pretend she’s my new momma. But she told me I can’t come home with her because apparently she has a bad dog who will bite me.
“I hope someone takes me home with them soon, because I heard the roommates talking about moving out, and that scares me because where will I go? The landlord wants all of my momma’s stuff (which includes me) gone in the next 3 weeks.”
