My angel. Xena, my 9 year old Tuxedo American Short Hair Princess. A surprise gift from my college boyfriend. She’s been my constant companion through 9 moves (yes 9 freaking moves every year), my rock through a major break up, constant life challenges and has unconditionally loved me through my journey of finding myself. Okay, maybe she loves me less when she shoes my shoes or leather goods or coughs up a hair ball here and there. She is so special to me.
