A teenaged girl with hip length brown hair with black and blond highlights came in. She was sitting on a Siberian Tiger looking calm. (In rl this is actually happening, i love Runningwind so much! And Moon and Comet, and Jasper..... and Domino) Domino=Paint horse. Jasper=White Tiger. Moon=Sea turtle. Comet=Chinchilla. Runningwind=Siberian Tiger. I own them all in rl.
