Mukhi and her male friend Paxton are the canine roommates of my friend Thea and her roommate Stacie in Durham, North Carolina. Mukhi is not quite 2 1/2 and Paxton turns 2 in May. "I call Mukhi my furry family member," says Stacie. "I call Paxton my dog," says Thea. Both were rescued from a local shelter where lots of awesome dogs are hoping for loving homes.
