Running with doggie friends, indestructible chew toys, agility, swimming, cookies, going on adventures with Mom, getting love.
Doggies that won't run with me, sea gulls, squirrels, rude dogs, rude people, being left alone.
Piggy. And my Coleman Roadkill Skunk.
Peanut butter, turkey, venison, watermelon.
In the woods! On the beach! To a swimmin' hole!
Talk like a pirate--ARRRRRR! Also high five, wave, roll (both ways), spin (both ways), bow, back up, crawl.
Lily is a rescue pup adopted from Save-A-Dog, http://www.saveadog.org. She and her sister (also adopted to a MA home) were left at a shelter in North Carolina.
In the shelter I met lots and lots of nice doggies. Sometimes some of the dogs got taken to a little room and never came back. I couldn't understand where they went. The shelter people always looked so sad after that happened. I worried that my sister and I would get taken to the little room. We were just puppies! One day some nice people came and put us in a van with a lot of other dogs and puppies. That was kind of scary but the shelter people seemed happy, so I thought it might be OK. We rode in the van for a looooong time, and finally arrived in New England. The nice ladies who drove the van said we would have a good chance of finding homes here! We got into another van with some friendly people from a place called Save A Dog, and then went to a foster home where a nice family took care of us. My sister got adopted first. Her name was Maggie, but I think she got a forever name from her new people. Finally I met my new Mom and went to my new home!
I sometimes still think about all those dogs that went to the little room and never came back. There are so many great animals just needing a home! I hope other people interested in a dog or puppy (OK, or even kitten or cat) will consider adopting from a shelter or rescue. I guess some people want a specific breed, but did you know that about 25% of dogs and puppies in shelters are purebreds? And there are also breed-specific rescues. I am a mixed breed and think that mixed breed doggies are pretty cool--we are cute and smart! Oh--please help end pet overpopulation--spay or neuter your pet!
