Comments: Siri is the proper size with full dentition and a correct bite. She is friendly and accepting of strangers and has an outgoing playful disposition. She loves to give kisses and do tricks for treats. She is very healthy and eats anything and everything with gusto. When the fruit trees or grape vines are very ripe she and her sister, Njozi, will pull and eat several pounds of fruit at a time.
 From birth her hairs reflected color like a million tiny crystals. Her eyes were blue when they opened, but as she got older they turned blue-green, then a hazy green. They currently are best described as a liquid version of her coat color. Her eye rims, lips and nose pigment are a very dark charcoal.
 During the summer her coat is a milky chocolate color. During the winter it can be slightly lighter. Regardless of the time of year her coat color can appear to vary from milky chocolate to light bluish grey in different backgrounds or under different light.
