Don’t miss this event! Stay at Ambrosia Key West and save 10%! Please be sure to mention “six toed cat”, to receive this special offer!
Meet Aja from Saint Cloud, Florida! This yorkie arrived at Brenda and Bob Hoffman’s home during Christmas 2012 weighing in at 2 lbs. Brenda Hoffman’s best friend actually rescued a pregnant yorkie that was carrying Aja and two of her brothers. Aja enjoys chasing Bob and Brenda’s three older cats around the house and giving lots of kisses, she is a very happy puppy. If Bob and Brenda leave for only 5 minutes, Aja tends to get separation anxiety. Once, they return she wiggles all over the place and pees on the floor! While staying at Ambrosia, Aja enjoyed accompanying Bob and Brenda for breakfast and meeting other puppies in the courtyard. Sniffing and walking Duval Street is Aja’s favorite pastime while in Old Town. Each evening after her Key West excursions, she would conch out and sleep like a baby in the Jungle Room. She has brought tremendous joy to Bob and Brenda’s life and is looking forward to her next trip back to Ambrosia! Per Aja’s request, Ambrosia Key West will be making a donation to Reef Relief, Key West.
