Taen Johnson: “On Facebook we have a Ko Jo Kai garage sale page where Kojies can sell anything from old merch, to furniture, to text books. I got a notification form it saying a friend had posted on the page. I don’t quite recall the quick inclination I had to open it right away but when I did I saw she was offering up a pretty rugged looking Pomeranian for free. I have never commented on a post so quickly, “ME.” When I went to meet him I discovered all his life he’d been an outdoor ranch dog…a Pomeranian. He was pretty poorly groomed but sweet nonetheless. We quickly grew together and he adapted to my life with flying colors. Often times he gets compared to a loaf of bread because he is so thick. Lenny got so much hype form all my friends so I made him an Instagram because he’s perfect. @lennythepompom”
