I also don't know the exact date we acquired Hailey. The short version of her story is dh heard through a friend of a co-worker that Hailey had been shoved under the fence line of animal control. Of course animal control didn't know her history and in Gastonia, NC if AC doesn't know the animal's history they are euthanized...they say to control rabies (IDN). Anyways, after phone conversations with an extremely nice lady at animal control she gave dh all the info he needed to claim Hailey as his own. We got her 3 days after we purchased Jasmine from a breeder...they are the best of friends. Hailey was extimated to be 1+ yrs old. I then just back tracked and set her date on 5/5/02. Hailey is a very good, sweet mentor and definately not the dominant type, so no conflicts with her and Jasmine. Just ironic...I am a tax preparer for a local firm and Jasmine's bithday is 4/15/03 (last day of tax season)!
