In The Bahamas, it's not uncommon to find stray dogs on the street. All of the uncontrolled breeding has led to our own indigenous "breed" affectionally referred to as "potcakes". In August of 2004, The Bahamas suffered two back to back hurricanes, Frances and Jeanne. My family and I had set out in the car in the calm between the two storms to investigate some of the damage done to the island when a small, furry pup crawled out of the bushes. My dad scooped her up and plopped her in my lap and I have been enamored of her ever since. With eyes barely open, she nuzzled into my arm for warmth from the rain. After a visit from the vet, we learned she was about 2 weeks old and orphaned but with a lot of TLC she would be perfectly healthy. Almost 9 years later, Frances Jeanne (Fran, for short) lives the sweet life and couldn't be happier. She's the best find anyone could make and we've loved her since day one!
