Odie was about three and a half when I bought her.

But all the rest of my current dogs were born here. They were not exactly free. I have purchased puppies in the past.

Heidi Ho, Odie
Joy-Joy, Bear Cub, Hepsi-Pepsi
Cujo2, Karma Chameleon
Ramona the Pest, Kojak -- who loves you baby?
Tiny Tinnie, Susie's Uzzi, Kaiah -- The Baby Monster.
