About Me

I was born to my parents Pearl and Mack on October 4, 1981, at The Coulston Foundation (TCF) in Alamogordo, NM. It appears I stayed with my mother for at least three months. At the young age of five months, I was sent to the University
of Pennsylvania with three other females. I stayed there for five years before being returned to TCF. At the age of eleven, I was placed into the breeding program. Despite noting that I did not like the males, they kept me in the program. I received trauma during this time frame and there were no pregnancies over the years. It seems like most of my friendships were with the females I met when I was younger.

I am now considered a “gem” by my care staff and enjoy hanging out with my friends Olivia and Katrina, the “golden girls” of Lou’s family. I love hanging out on the island and actually prefer spending all my time outdoors. I am very smart and help my care staff and the vet staff by voluntarily participating in daily Kardia (EKG readings of the heart) as well as other preventative medical care.
