Name and age of the dog: Candy, 12 years
Adoption history: The neighbors in our lake house found an abused golden retriever mutt and picked him up and named her Candy. A few months later we came and our neighbors asked if we were interested in adopting. They knew we only had one dog at this point since our other lab passed away and thought our dog might be lonely. We adopted Candy on the fourth weekend in July 2010 and it was the best decision we have ever made.
More sweets: Candy loves to run down the pond with her favorite friend Moira, a five-year-old tortoiseshell cat. She also likes to slide. She will climb into our tree house and slide down the slide!
