Marigold is my brightest, sweetest, most loving child! She's been with us over 12 years. My husband surprised me with her as a puppy. I was sitting outside, he drove up in his truck, she stood up, put her front paws on the window, looked at me, and took my heart. Every day since, I have adored her. I named her Marigold since "she's bright, she's beautiful, but she's a stinker!"
She has health issues. Arthritis, age warts, liver and spleen enlargement, now some suspected kidney problems. And her little face just keeps getting whiter and whiter. But I love her sense of humor, her sense of entitlement when it comes to food, attention, treats, whatever. And she's very devoted to us and prefers to be near us rather than anywhere else.
She sheds like a dandelion and is often underfoot when you're trying to cook, clean, mow lawn, etc. but I wouldn't want it any other way.
