From death's door to forever home!

FM took me to Petco today with my "Adopt Me" vest on. I am still too skinny for it to fit properly, so it kept flopping around on me. FM says this adds to my awkward charm! The vest I was wearing must be magical, because EVERYONE wanted to stop and pet me and talk to FM about me and the rescue organization that saved me. This one couple was the nicest to me... the lady was really pawsome because she had a pocket full of treats and kept feeding them to me! She made me "sit" and "touch" her hand and "leave" the treat, and I listened beautifully - so I got the treat every time! The lady was impressed that I was so young and so well-behaved. The man she was with remarked that I had a mellow easygoing demeanor about me and I didn't seem too wired. I would say that's pretty accurate... I am an easygoing guy for sure! Anyway, FM spent a long time talking to this couple while we were in the toy aisle. The nice lady asked if she could buy me a toy, and before FM could even process it fully, the lady had pulled one of the biggest loofie dogs off the shelf and was heading toward the register to pay for it! Oh my Dog! A toy JUST FOR ME? That made my tail wag really hard! FM thanked the nice lady over and over for thinking of me... then the lady really surprised her... she gave FM $20 to give to the rescue! She also asked FM for the FFLI information so she could spread the word about me and our rescue group. FM was so touched, and I was super-happy! I can't understand all of the things that people talk about, but I picked up enough to know that this lady and the man with her were kind, sweet people. I bet they would have made a nice forever family for me... but they told FM they just adopted a dog a little over a week ago. Oh well... I think it's nice that they adopted at all! There are so many of us rescue pups out there, just waiting for good homes to call our own!
