I am a Texan in Florida with two dogs who like to pose for pictures. On our adventures throughout Florida, we often stumble upon incredible habitats full of beautiful flora and fauna.

It all started in 2013 when I saw a puppy in need of an adventurous home on Craigslist. I met Mako that summer when he was just a year old by another name, Miko. He was a cute pup; he was skinny and skittish. He was found at a gas station by an Australian Cattle Dog rescue group volunteer. Apparently, the employees at the gas station had been feeding him hot dogs for a few days. They said that someone had dumped him off the back of a truck days earlier and left him.

January 2016 I began asking around at my dog club if anyone had a foster they were looking to re-home. I met Abby after two failed meet-ups with dogs from Craigslist. In March 2016 I was introduced to Abby by a friend and I knew instantly she would be a handful. When I first met her, she was more interested in the tennis ball than she was me. I went home and pondered names for her. The final toss up was between Coral (short for the Coral Cat Shark--another story altogether) and Zorra.
