No one who had never known these dogs would believe that they came from different places. They are so close to one another that sometimes I am amazed. I could ask for nothing more from these two wonderful pets. They constantly bring joy and laughter to the entire household. Kaia (the smaller one) is holding her own and she matches Yuki step for step. She has even been known to boss him around a time or two.
Though they are of the same breed, they are entirely two different dogs. For instance, Yuki is a picky eater but Kaia is always and forever ready to eat. Of course I have seen instances where she gets to the food and decides that it is not to her liking. I am still changing up their food as they do seem to get bored with the same thing over and over. I know this by the decision they make to eat or not. Kaia’s breath is still kicking but it is indeed getting better. She is still being re-potty trained and is also doing stellar in that area. She has gotten used to being touched so much so that she now comes to you without being called. Like Yuki, Kaia is always happy to see us when we come home and in between playing with and bossing around Yuki, she tries to spend all her time in our company.
She has even taught Yuki a thing or two. She seems to always be ready whenever you have a camera pointed in her direction and in that way she has allowed Yuki to find some patience for our constant camera snap-happiness. I have no doubt that she was waiting for us to adopt her because I cannot tell you how many times I have been disappointed in my quest to adopt a playmate for Yuki. She has come into all our lives at a wonderful time and has given Yuki something that we couldn’t, constant doggie companionship. We love them both dearly.
