We were 3 years old when we got a pekinese baby. She was a birthday present to my grandmother. We got Snoopy around the same time frame. He was the best german shepherd. My grandmother gave the pekinese to her sister in law when she ripped my sister's lip open. She had a weird temperament. They got us a peekapoo to raise as our inside baby. We have had alot of animals through the years. I can remember every one of them.
