Etta James's mom says: Etta James is our five-week-old Boston terrier. We havenâ€™t even brought her home yet; weâ€™ll just be visiting until sheâ€™s eight weeks. In October we lost our best friend of 12 years, Cujo (also a female Boston terrier), and the house was just too quiet. Luckily we found sweet Etta James. We think she is as soulful as her namesake.
