found a forever home by being adopted by a lady from Bloomington.

many changes in her life in a short time that she is perpetually
scared, but the family is a very patient and loving family. Sweet
Pea will be just fine. She already has a cushy bed and a basket, a
dress, a dozen stuffed animals, a new collar and leash, and a
nightlight so she can find her food and water at night. Do you think
she might get a little spoiled?
