    I got one of the best dogs I have every had from her ( 28 years ago ) .. When ever I saw her she would always say hello . She was a special lady and will be missed by alot of people . Rest in peace Zaina , I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so blessed to have been able to meet Zaina and be apart of her life. Thankfully, we were able to bond over our love of her babies; Redd, PNutt, & Arielle. We thank and think of her, daily.

    Zaina had a huge heart of gold. She put up with a lot of our crap, as teens, and you could always count on her tough love. She left a mark on my heart and will be dearly missed.
