"Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
In the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face
That she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?"
I felt that was very fitting for this bat-eared dog that I fell in love with.
Found as a stray on the lonely, busy streets of Toronto. Living on her own for who knows how long. Scavenging the leftovers of someone else's happiness. No one to love her.
Then she's captured by animal control, placed in a kennel awaiting someone to bring her home. With each potential home passing her way, she puts her best smile on in hopes that she will find that special family.
Days, then weeks, then months go by still putting a happy face on. Until that faithful day that I came across her picture on Petfinder, and I knew she was mine.
I'd be lying if I said the journey has been easy with her. But it'd be even more of a lie if I said it wasn't worth every trial she's put me through.
I've watched this little dog turn from sickly, fearful, untrained and unruly, to a confident, wonderful girl.
She is so willing to learn and wanting to please it's truly amazing.
She's graduated at the top of her obedience and agility classes so far. Who knows how far we'll go together?
