Guestbook for Taku

  1. I’m so happy to see an update on sweet Taku. I found her early Saturday morning surrounded by people touching her and taking photos. I called you guys and waited with her till she was picked up. Informing people it was better to keep a distance from her and that someone was on the way. Such a sweet soul and I’m glad she’s in good hands
