We named our dogs' son Stitch. Anastasia and Dipper. All of his siblings went on to great families and are very loved. Stitch turned out to be the naughtiest of the 6 puppies. He fills our lives with mischief, joy, sympathy and above all love... every time he breaks something... we reference ohana to understand his somewhat extreme nature and we love him very much 🥰🥰🥰

We adopted Stitch at the SPCA, the owner was declining with memory so his family gave Stitch over to SPCA. I was confused with this name so I googled for some info, and he did fill this description. He knows his name but rest assured, he is calm, curious, listens to me, guards, and a famous part of Disney! My firsts own understands was Stitch’s meaning was, he makes you laugh, a “stitch,” a good and great guy to have around, quiet but also comic relief! I’ll take two please! Lol
