This is RiRi...aka Rihanna. RiRi and my family met at a really difficult time in all of our lives. Me, my husband, my mom, and our other fur baby Scruffy lost our home in the Great Flood of 2016 in Baton Rouge. With 2 feet of water in our home, we were forced to stay in someone else's home for a couple of months. We were devastated and traumatized to say the least. Then one day we opened the front door to our temporary home to take Scruffy for a stroll, and there was a little brown ball of cuteness standing outside in the yard next door. No collar, no food, no water, no family. When she saw us and Scruffy, she knew EXACTLY who her new family was going to Be! She ran over to us full speed! But there was only one problem. A big one. Our temporary home was not a "Pets Welcome" type of place. We barely got away with Scruffy being there. So, heartbroken, I hoped that whoever lost this sweetheart, would come looking for her. But apparently the family she had could no longer take care of her and had just dropped her off to fend for herself. We had lost our home and she had lost hers. I advertised her everywhere I could. Hoping somone would want to take her in. She stayed in our yard for three days, crying outside the bedroom window each night and greeting us with a wagging tail each morning. She knew there was love in this house for her. With winter approaching and her sad puppy eyes eating away at my heart, I had to figure out how to make her mine. I kept her in the back yard until we could find somewhere warm for her to stay. My in-laws agreed to keep her until we found somewhere pet friendly to stay. So we decided to scrape together our funds and get a temporary, pet friendly apartment to live in until our home was repaired. And we have been together ever since! Our RiRi bug! Here we are now, almost two years after the flood with our special flood puppy. She is full of love and full of play. This is the face of a special pup with a special place in our hearts.
