The Merchandiser Dog Bore
Dog Bore: Danae Cole
Dog: Cash & Cali
Chihuahua and Pitbull mix. No idea where Cash is from but Cali is from Los Banos
How did you meet your canine companion?
Well Cash found us. He was abandoned in our orchards when he was a pup. We had seen him for months but we were never able to catch him. Until one night I came home after work and he was on our porch I tried to approach him but he ran. The next day my husband sent me a video at work of this skinny filthy dog that he was able to catch with some leftover thanksgiving ham. My husband left a trail of ham from the orchards to our porch where he sat for hours until Cash came to him. After that he was ours.
With Cali I had been looking at local rescues for few months trying to find a puppy to adopt. My husband and I couldn't agree upon any we came across until one night I showed him Cali’s adoption profile. As soon as I showed him he looked at me and said get her, after that I did all I could to get into contact with her rescue. 3 days later we were in the car driving 2 hours to meet her. As soon as I seen her my heart melted I knew she was meant to be part of our family. Before even meeting her I bought her a collar with her name and a bunch of pink baby blankets and soft toys. The day I met Cali is the day Cali came home with us and she just moved right in she was so comfortable when we brought her home you'd think she'd been here her whole life.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Cash’s name was hard for us. I wanted to name him Boyd and my husband wanted to name him Buddy. It took us maybe a week to settle on a name, so we broke out a baby book and hunted for the perfect name. We found nothing. One day we were watching Walk The Line & my husband said what about Johnny I said no how about Cash and Cash it was.
Cali’s original name was Kelee but I didn't love it and I found myself wanting to say Cali instead of Kelee.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
When we got Cash I was at a low of low in my life. I had just suffered a miscarriage and was dropped from my college for missing so much school due to medical issues. Cash was what I needed in that time of my life he brought me out of my dark place and was I needed to push through and move on with my life. He has brought nothing but happiness and love to our lives. He's our little boy.
Now Cali I just had puppy fever. We had bought our first home and I wanted a larger dog for protection well little did I know we adopted the most loveable thing in the world that could never hurt a fly. She has made life more fun. She brings out the puppy in cash which we love so much and she's just so much fun and loveable. She's definitely a handful but she's our handful.
