I don't remember much about my life before I got lost on the streets. All I remember is the the animal control man picked me up and put me in the back of a truck. I was so cold and scared, but maybe it was better than being on the streets. I lost a lot of weight not eating much.. I am a very picky eater and only eat the really, really tasty stuff anyway...so being on the streets wasn't good. All there was around was grass and weeds and once in awhile I would find a worm... but I don't eat them... I just roll on them to get the smell on me... It is sort of like a deodorant or perfume. I love the smell of worms, especially dried ones. Anyway, I got distracted.... My ride in the truck was scary and when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did. We arrived at this shelter and there were lots of dogs there and they were all barking. They had no idea I was a queen and were very rude. I stayed at the shelter for 30 days just in case my owners were looking for me...but they never came to get me. The people at the shelter named me "Inky" because my fur is very black and shiny... like a queen of course. Then one day, a lady came in from an animal rescue group called... uh, Furry Friends Rescue and she took me out of the shelter. I went to live in a foster home for awhile and my foster mommy didn't like the name Inky very much.... I mean like did they think I did... not a great name for royalty. So she changed my name to Licorice. At the same time... My Mom to be wanted a black dog and she wanted to call the dog Licorce....it's her favorite candy in the world. It was meant to be, don't you think? My foster mommy and my adoption mommy met and my new mommy fell in love with me.... She knew I was queen in the rough.. She took me home and gave me a good bath and I was gleaming clean. I now looked the part. She got me looking pretty good because I was a surprise gift for her granddaughter, Cristiana. Cristiana always wanted a dog, I mean a queen of her own and I was the one she dreamed about, I just know it.
