Helmina says: "Hi, everybody! I'm Helmina and I'm a rottweiler puppy. I used to live on a farm in a place called Tennessee with goats and racehorses until this nice lady came and got me. She says she's my new mommy, and we live in an apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have a new big sister named Stella. She's a chocolate beagle and she's pretty fun to play with. Sometimes she even lets me bite her tail or her ears. Mommy says I have a new daddy, too, but he's in some place called Iraq and should be home in a couple of weeks. I can't wait to play with him! My favorite thing to do play with mommy's old knitting projects. Yarn sure is tangley! I hope you like my pictures."
