Lainie is 6 1/2 years old now, and I've had her since she was five weeks old (remember, she had to be taken away from her mother early because the mother was smothering the puppies and a few of them had died). I'm really attached to her now, and I love her so much that it borders on ridiculous. I'm sure you all understand. :P
