what makes me happy !

“He brings me such happiness!” I adopted my dog, Cisco, from a shelter that partners with a rescue in Puerto Rico. He’s three years old and spent two years living in a shelter there. I wanted to give him a Spanish name to honor where he came from, and after talking with family and friends I settled on Cisco. I later found out it means “free man,” and it couldn’t be more fitting! He’s so loving and adorable. And we both enjoy hiking, walking and going for runs together. Cisco brings me such happiness! —Denise Click, Allen Park, MI Do you have a happy moment to share?
