The story of how Bimini and Fritter were rescued and came into our lives is one of my favorite stories to tell. My friend Ashley and I had been staying at the Marina named Morgan's Bluff in Nicholls Town for nearly five days when we found two puppies abandoned on an old shipping vessel. These poor puppies had no food, no water, and were very scared! Ashley, Fritter's adopted pet mom, and I knew right away that we were meant to find them, and they were meant to find us. After they began to feel safe with us, it was love from that point on. So we decided to bring them back home to Florida. I remember calling my soon-to-be husband and saying, "Babe, so I brought home something. Well… more than something, it's a puppy, and I named her Bimini!". At the time, he was also weeks away from adopting our other dog, Chipper. So before we knew it, we were mom and dad to two puppies, who quickly became best friends. Bimini and Chipper now live spoiled, comfortable lives with my husband and me and our three kids. Bimini is quirky and sometimes shy, but she's an excellent pet. She rarely acts up, but when she does, I jokingly remind her that she's living the good life now as an American and could otherwise be foraging for crabs and trash off the beaches. Haha, I think she loves her life with us, and we love her."
