Everything that lead up to February 26th took place just over a year ago. Astoria had just finished school and moved out on her own. Living on her own was great and gave her a lot of freedom but she started to feel very lonely. She had many friends but no one that could be there all the time.

At his moment, not only did Astoria know, but the lady at the desk knew, this would be the day that Astoria got to take her newly, adopted, companion named Killian home. Killian would be the best golden retriever Astoria could of ever had the chance to adopt and the wait was all worth it in the end.
