Anya (Russian form of Anne) on May 07, 2020:

My twin brother and I were adopted from far East Russia when we were four. Since my brother has a cat named Sasha, I wanted a Russian name too. Anya is a ten weeks old chocolate lab and very, very active. My mom's Lhasa-poo is aftaid of her attemps to play and growls even though she is, for now, many times larger. Of course Anya will soon be huge. I've only had her for eleven days. I can't wait until she is big enough to wrestle with me, play catch and go swimming while I fish.

She's our first lab and she's go ou ng to be a great companion.
