Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2016 so far.
When I bought my dog Molly. That is my most memorable moment. I was super happy and afraid. The guy at the airport almost killed me of heart attack. He didn't want to give me my bully because of a paperwork confusion, and some regulations in my country. She definitely changed my life, and she is so especial to me.
